Kernel 2.6.4:
Some modules (floppy, lp, loop..) won´t be autoloaded any more since
2.4.21. There´s no block-major aso. request in the kernel-ring buffer.
I have /etc/modules.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf with modutils-2.4.21-23.1
and depmod -V: module-init-tools 3.0-pre5. How can I track this down?
Shouldn't be there a kmod process/ thread in the process list?

Sorry, if I miss something to read.
