Excellent. I presume that you are commenting on this thread because you
also have /usr on a separate partition? So I can tick off various
different scenarios on my list, can you say what filesystem you use on
/usr and if there is anything special about it (LVM, RAID etc.).

Nah, this is just a warning. If you want to silence it, just move
/etc/probrobe.conf into /etc/modprobe.d/default.conf
