This patch need to be merge on core-updates because > 2200 packages will need to be rebuilt. Without this patch (in particular `--sysconfdir=/etc`) it's
not possible to pass module arguments to `kernel-module-loader` from

As the core-updates branch is frozen right now, could you submit this
patch as a 'kmod/next' variable?  See e.g. 'help2man/latest' or
'automake-1.16.2' for inspiration.

I can do that but I would need to adjust %modprobe-wrapper for
`kernel-loader-module` to work without the crutch at 8c88e24229 since the service
gets its modprobe from "/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe".

After the core-updates merge, we can do a larger 'staging' round that
updates the default 'kmod'.

I wonder if we should patch eudev to use
/run/current-system/profile/bin/ instead of /gnu/store/...kmod/bin so
that we can update kmod without triggering a huge rebuild.

eudev uses libkmod to to use it's kmod feature so I'm not sure how to do this.
