Description of problem:
This is a fallout from modprobe bug 116656, but it would be possible
(and perhaps desirable) to work around it in rc.sysinit. We load the
firewire controller module, as well as the sbp2 module, without
checking whether they've already been loaded, and modprobe now fails
in this case. If I force these modules to be loaded by initrd, I get
an undesirable FAIL during boot whehn rc.sysinit attempts to load the
ieee1394-controller module as well as sbp2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Initializing firewire controller (ohci1394): [FAIL]
Expected Results: It might as well simply skip the whole thing if the
module is already loaded.
This shouldn't be an issue with current modutils now.
Confirmed, the [FAILED] has now become an [OK]. Thanks!
