Install the kernel-modules-extra package.  It was moved there.

Comment 2 Jason Montleon 2012-04-23 14:54:05 UTC
Thanks. Can mention of this new package be mentioned in the release notes? I can open a new bug if that works better. 

It is just sort of unexpected to see functionality go away after an upgrade, and short of defaulting the install of the package, which probably defeats the purpose of what it's trying to do, documentation would probably be the next best thing.
