I think so too. I'll need to check that e.g. partman-crypto
handles not being able to load loop-aes-modules anyway. I would
agree that having some delay between kernel update and
linux-modules-di upload would not be too bad.

Okay. Given the central build script, I'm not sure it's worth to
look into autobuilding the package right now. I imagine building
on buildds can be tricky because <foo>-modules-<kvers> often
depend on linux-image-<kvers>.
So, based on (I think) all feedback received, I created a first
package of this kind in /people/xam/kernel/; It includes only
loop-aes-modules for now but can be extended to also handle other
modules in a simple way once the need arises.
