It's not a duplicate of the modules. Instead, there are two sets of
drivers, the drivers supplied by the 2.4 kernel and the drivers provided
by the pcmcia-cs source. The kernel-image package now, incorrectly,
includes some symlinks from the /lib/modules/<k>/pcmcia directory to the
kernel modules located elsewhere in the /lib/modules/<k> directory tree.
Since these symlinks are located in the location where the standalone
drivers have always resided, a conflict occurs and "--force-overwrite"
See Bug#128662 for more information.
