Summary:                    modprobe won't use modules.alias
Description: 
modprobe completely ignores /lib/modules/whatever/modules.alias.

This breaks loading of some modules which have changed their name in
kernel 2.6.16 and rely on an alias in the aforementioned file (for example
ipt_tcp -> xt_tcpudp).

See attached patch. Solves the issue.

As a plus, it adds support for includes in modprobe.conf.
