files in /etc/modprobe.d directory are not read and used if /etc/modprobe.conf exists, which is the case with modules-init-tools in Archlinux.

If /etc/modprobe.d/framebuffer_blacklist is really usefull (?), then we need a line like that in /etc/modprobe.conf for it to be read:
include /etc/modprobe.d

if /etc/modprobe.d/framebuffer_blacklist is not useful, then ... remove it ?

Additional info:
* udev-119-1
* /etc/modprobe.conf need to be changed
* bug to be rewritten as a bug in module-init-tools 3.2.2-6 ??

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

it's not that i have been hit by a bug or something similar with that file. but i had that problem by the past when creating /etc/modprobe.d and putting in it some file

and then i notice that file in /etc/modprobe.d so .... if modprobe behaves still the same

Actually, I patched modprobe to read both. Previously, it would check for /etc/modprobe.conf and stop there if found. If it wasn't found, THEN it would read /etc/modprobe.d/*

This patch reads both always:

It is also accepted upstream. I am not sure if there is a new release or not
