Hm. So I wonder if it can be worked around by shipping an empty
modules.dep on the root disk?

root@kite:/home/joey/tmp>rm /lib/modules/2.2.16/modules.dep 
root@kite:/home/joey/tmp>modprobe unix.o
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.2.16/modules.dep
(No such file or directory)
root@kite:/home/joey/tmp>touch /lib/modules/2.2.16/modules.dep
root@kite:/home/joey/tmp>modprobe unix.o
modprobe: Can't locate module unix.o

Perhaps throwing in such a file, at least for testing, will cause
modprobe to tell us what module it's trying to load before even init
runs (very weird behavior, if you ask me).
