I'm replying on this in arch-general and aur-general because i cant post in 

So if i understand correctly we (the people running custom kernels) can't 
prepare for this ?

There is no way of moving the modules already to /usr/lib ? I assume kmod now 
only looks in /lib.

Another note, people with custom repositories should move their kernels in 
sync with the official repositories ?
