Bug#74913: Bug 74913

Hi Malcom and Wichert.  I also have this problem with modconf and latter
2.4 series kernels.  I've been keeping up with the 2.4 series for the
netfilter support and I think at around 2.4.0-test5 modconf was broken.
Malcom's report on the bug is accurate.  modconf fails due to the new
module hierarchy used on latter kernels.  The 2.4 series kernels are
nearly ready for release but we havn't found a fix to this bug yet.  Can
the bug report be bumped up to a higher priority?  Anyone have a hacked
modconf that works?  I'd really like to get working on the newer kernels
without having to modify the config files in /etc by hand.  I've
actually had this problem for a very long time (few months) and have
been using an older 2.4 series kernel that has the older style /usr/lib
directory structure.  I don't submit too many bugs because half of the
time someone already has... so I thought this was gonna be a quick and
easy fix... but I see the ticket is still open.  Thanks in advanced!
