[Mageia-dev] kmod issue with modprobe install rules.

I think I've found a problem:

If we have a line:

install ide-controller /sbin/modprobe ide_generic; /bin/true

then module-init-tools will allow us to do:

modprobe ide-controller

but with kmod, it just says:

FATAL: Module wibble not found.

So it seems it looks up the module first an bails before running the
install rule.

I've never quite understood the ide-controller stuff, but this
difference could cause us other problems.
