This is an upstream change in the handling of modprobe.d file
pattern matching. They are going to be altering it to only match
files with a .conf suffix.
There is a recent discussion on the devel list[0] which, if I understand
correctly, means that as a user it _should_ mean only that any files
you've added manually will need to be renamed in the future.
