Run modprobe with the -s (or --syslog) option. Note that this won't
print anything on the screen, though, which is probably why the boot
scripts don't use it.
A more general solution is eventually to cause all output from the
initialization scripts to be logged. There's been some discussion about
this on debian-devel.
