Any idea when the warning will be dropped?

IMO the warning, and support for files without .conf, should be kept 
active in Debian at least until after the release of Squeeze as users may 
have added local modprobe.d files without a .conf extention. In that case 
the first time they would see any warnings would be during a lenny to 
squeeze upgrade.
