Bug#209301: modconf: on module installation failure, suggest isa-pnp.o to the user

Package: modconf
Version: 0.2.44
Severity: wishlist

When the user tries to insert a module for an unconfigured ISA-PnP card,
the driver installation will fail (perhaps mysteriously to the user).
After a module fails initialization, the suggestion should be made that
the user install the isa-pnp module if the hardware in question is an
ISA-PnP card.

"The module failed initialization.  Check the hardware resources (I/O,
IRQ) and if the card is a ISA PnP card, ensure that you have installed
the isa-pnp module first."
