FEAT: honor kernel's INSTALL_MOD_PATH environment variable
Last modified: 2008-07-14 16:11:02 EDT
Linux build system can install modules into an alternate directory through
INSTALL_MOD_PATH environment variable. However, current mkinitrd will always
search for modules in /lib/modules.
It would be nice to have the tool to search the modules from the freshly
installed alternate location.
I'm attaching a proposed patch for this.

mkinitrd now uses modprobe, from module-init-tools to accomplish this task. If
this functionality is still desired, it'd need to be added there.
