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. > The parameters are intended to be used when booting the installer, as > it can automatically pass the parameters to the modules, and create > appropriate configuration files for modprobe on the installed system. 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.
