Package: hw-detect, disk-detect, ethdetect
Version: 1.46

Wishlist: It would be nice if disk-detect and ethdetect would, in expert mode, prompt the user for a list of modules to attempt to load, and allow the user to un/select modules by hand (or via preseed).

(This would, at least, allow me to work around other known bugs such as bug #388501.)

The installer already allows this through two mechanisms:
- at medium and low priority, you will be prompted for which modules
  should or should not be loaded
- for modules loaded automatically by udev, you can blacklist specific
  modules at the boot prompt [1] (ATM only in daily built images)

IMO this provides sufficient control over which modules get loaded to 
allow the user to work around specific issues. Therefore closing this 
request.

Cheers,
FJP
