Well, with kernel team policy as it is, I can see the reluctance to 
include this in a stable release if there's no comments from upstream yet 
to indicate if it will be accepted or not.

We could go for a different solution purely in d-i: create a debconf 
template debian-installer/blacklist (or maybe modprobe/blacklist) that 
accepts a list of modules and creates an /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local 
file. This file could also be copied to the installed system without too 
much trouble.

This would probably give a more generic solution to similar problems, as 
for example #405196.

Processing this could probably be implemented in the rootskel and 
finish-install udebs.
