[arch-general] hwdetect with kernel upgrade?

A long time ago, I posted that with kernel upgrade, the module insertion hangs 
till I hit enter.

I ran hwdetect and updated the modules array, sans the standard acpi modules 
and it now works reliably every time. It can boot unattended now.

AFAIK, the module-names and functionality is prone to changes from kernel to 
kernel. Should we automatically run hwdetect or advise users to check it in 
case of kernel upgrade?
