[arch-projects] [PATCH 08/10] depmod: no longer update module dependencies on boot

This should not be necessary as the packages installing modules should
be responsible for updating the dependencies.

Furthermore, as modules can be loaded very early in boot, but depmod can
only be called after root is mounted rw, we can not rely on depmod
fixing broken module dependencies.
