Because it does not have the same meaning.

Putting a modprobe.d file for ldetect aliases mean that they can not be
overriden. All alias matches from modprobe.d files will be loaded.

If the ldetect-lst file is parsed from another conf files "group", as my
patch is doing, only the alias match from modprobe.d files will be
loaded if found.
