IMHO such stuff should have been uploaded to experimental first, but the
maintainer is notorious for breaking things.  Have a look at the
archived bugs of udev¹, for instance.

No, this has to be done by the packages providing the files.  Bugs have
already been filed against them.

In the meantime, I'd suggest downgrading module-init-tools to 3.4-1
until the problems have been sorted out.  At least that's what I did.
