Similar cleanup was done years ago in lm_sensors:


and there is no reason for creating init scripts loading every single
module out there (joystick-init, alsa-init, floppy-init, usb-init?!) If
you want modules loaded, that ARE NOT handled by udev/systemd, just put
them in /etc/modules.d or provide /etc/modules-load.d/ipmi.conf.
Suggesting script which tries to mknod something is a NO GO. Not in XXI
