Just to clarify: I submitted the blacklist patch to modprobe so we
would not have to parse the commandline ourselves.

The reason for /run was so that we could keep supporting blacklisting
in the MODULES array, but as this would not be a one-to-one
correspondence with the old behavior we agreed that it was not worth
it, and ripped it out altogether (which makes the /run stuff a bit
pointless, but maybe someone else have a use for it...).
