Please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but...

Why is it that modload is located in /sbin, yet the supplied lkm's are 
all located in /usr/lkm?  It seems to me that if modload is in /sbin, 
someone must have realized that non-root files systems, like /usr, might 
not yet be available.  Yet the supplied lkm's are, for the most part, 
file systems code which might well be needed before being able to mount 

Perhaps there should really be two places to put lkm's, /lkm in addition 
to /usr/lkm?
