I think you're mistaken. Our modprobe doesn't have any message of the
sort, relating to Arch. The error you are seeing is due to a change in
the way modprobe parses config files. It used to read
/etc/modprobe.conf and/or /etc/modprobe.d/* - now it only reads

The message is modprobe telling you something is wrong with the config
files. Most likely you just have a .pacsav file in /etc/modprobe.d/
