One week later!! For an unknown (for me at least) reason, I lost grub!
And as I am (or was) unable to use rescue boot, I reinstalled Stretch
and doing that I lost my DNS chrooted config and my iptables rules. As
I am not as good as I was, it took me a week to recover (even my
health, physical and mental). But there still is one issue: at boot time
there still is the message: "no symbols table", when all the kernel
modules seem to be loaded, and modprobe doesn't seem to fail! Does
someone understand? Sorry for my English.

I just upgraded to Stretch. At boot I get a warning: " No

access point: "modprobe iwlwifi.ko" can't find this
module in the kernel directory, but this module is there.
I remember there was a problem with this module in
Jessie, but I can't remember the solution. Please help.
modprobe doesn't use the extension, I think you can still do that with
insmod, but modprobe uses a symbol list created by depmod.
There are pretty good man pages for these tools, but I'd guess your issue
is probably firmware, there's a good wiki about the iwlwif did you check
# modprobe iwlwifi.ko
modprobe: FATAL: Module iwlwifi.ko not found in directory
