the patch removes the previous workaround that converts - in module filenames, 
to _ . it's removed because if a module is selected manually, it's made from 
filenames. so the - must match.

maybe if a module isn't selected manually, it comes from lstdetect or udev or 
whatever it comes from... maybe your module is wrong... like that the modules 
are called ehci-hcd and the filename is called ehci_hcd ? it would be nice to 
know... if you can find a working setup (older livecd) and give an lsmod, we 
might be able to deduce that. from whatever modules you need.

in any case, with this hardware, did the previous beta work?
