           Summary: modprobe does not handle built-in modules
           Product: Busybox
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: mjt+busybox at tls.msk.ru
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
   Estimated Hours: 0.0

When busybox modprobe is asked to load a module which is built-in to the
running kernel, it complains that the module isn't found:

# busybox modprobe unix
modprobe: module unix not found in modules.dep
# echo $?
# fgrep unix /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.builtin
# _

Upstream modprobe handles requests for insertion of such modules without
returning error (except of --first-time case), just like for regular but
already loaded modules.

This is debian bug #652672: http://bugs.debian.org/652672
