Not sure I understand what you mean. When we remove load-modules.sh
from udev, we must of course also delete 80-drivers.rules and adjust
81-arch.rules. However, we do not need to remove load-modules.sh at
the same time as introducing this blacklisting magic. Right?

Sounds like it should be easy then (I have not looked at the code much
yet). Unless I am missing something (see above) we can do the
initscript/mkinitcpio independently and when both are in [core] start
patching udev.
