Anything related to snd* modules for a start.

properly. If we as users can't expect to be able to use this file anymore, it would be user-friendlier for the package upgrade to tell us so and state the correct alternative.
It does, it's not my fault if you can't read and/or understand warnings.

The insults aren't really necessary.  If you're referring to:

WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong
into /etc/modprobe.d/.

then that doesn't really tell me how to fix anything (move modprobe.conf into modprobe.d? Move the contents into their own files in modprobe.d?) The modprobe.conf manpage, which I'd consider a logical place to look for details, doesn't make any mention of this either. Incidentally, it also mentions a generate_modprobe.conf script that is no longer distributed with the package.
