Firstly my understanding of "correct" setup for /etc/modules involves putting 
only module names in there and having the parameters defined in 
/etc/modutils/* files.  The mkinitrd process copies the /etc/modules.conf 
file (generated from /etc/modutils/*) to the initrd image so this should work 
fine.  Anyone who has opinions to the contrary please let me know.

But I'll apply your patch anyway, just to avoid any confusion, thanks for 
writing it and sending it to me.
