Hi Ludo,

Removing allow-collisions.

Otherwise the defaults are different.

I'm pretty sure that we don't need locales for Linux kernel modules,
for example :)

That said, I can do it--but it would increase build dependencies.

I'd like to do that but it would lose information here.

"modules" would be too vague.  "directories" would be non-unique.
(What "module-directories" means is "'/lib/modules'-directories", literally)

"entries" would be too vague too.  Entries of what?
(Especially since that's a procedure).

I'll make it say "directory" instead of "directory-name" there.


The "existing-files" procedure exists only in order to allow us to
build Linux kernels without any modules (neither in linux-libre nor anywhere
else) and have the profile hook succeed.

Maybe it's written in an overly general way for that?  What do you think?

(It's actually kinda bad that I ignore kernel-loadable-modules
which have no "/lib/modules" in it (better would be an error)--but I wasn't
sure whether manifest-inputs is guaranteed to keep the original order of
the entries--which would be: linux-libre first)
