I have sent a replacement /etc/init.d/modules script to Michael Meskes
and he included it in the modules package that he uploaded. He's not
the maintainer though (I thought so at first) so a later version by
the official maintainer might have the old script again.
Anyway its short enough to include here. I think I should send it
to the real maintainer but I can't look his address at the moment
(I'm at home right now and my dpkg listing here lists Ian Murdoch, but I
think he has handed it over to someone else).
# /etc/init.d/modules: loads the appropriate modules in `boot'.
# See if we have any modules.
[ -d /lib/modules/`uname -r` ] || exit 0
echo -n "Calculating module dependencies... "
# Loop over every line in /etc/modules.
echo -n 'Loading modules:'
while read module args
case "$module" in

echo " $module"
modprobe $module $args
done < /etc/modules
