For an example of this behavior.

I've previous submitted this as an initscript RFE, but it was closed as
unfixable and the recommendation was one of two alternatives, either the
creation of modprobe.conf entries that run sysctl on module load, or udev rules
that run sysctl after module registration.  Seems like the most easily
configurable choice would be some type of modprobe.conf entry that caused sysctl
to be run.
