Created attachment 417037 [details]
patch for mkinitrd to look at /etc/modprobe.d/*

Description of problem:
If modprobe.conf is moved to /etc/modprobe.d/ (since /etc/modprobe.conf is deprecated), mkinitrd ignores the file and generates a bad initrd image (i.e., it's missing modules).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (if necessary) edit /etc/modprobe.conf and add a line to use the cciss module:
       alias scsi_hostadapter2 cciss
2. mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.d/
3. mkinitrd -f --nocompress /tmp/initrd-testing.img `uname -r`
4. cpio -t < /tmp/initrd-testing.img | grep cciss
Actual results:
cciss module is not included in /tmp/initrd-testing.img

Expected results:
cciss module is included
   # cpio -t < /tmp/initrd-orig-etc_modprobe_conf.img | grep cciss
