We have a mechanism for that. See the 'register-module' script in 

If the module needs to be available when the initrd is created, use:
   register-module -i <module>
If it just needs to be in /etc/modules at boot time, use:
   register-module <module>

It is also possible to set parameters for modules, but you probably don't 
need that.
