Cool.  I renamed /etc/modprobe.conf to /etc/modprobe.conf.last and rebooted.

Haven't noticed any issues: network is up (as eth0 even!), and
pulseaudio/sound came up as well.

One fewer thing to maintain is always good!

I don't remember who/when the "scsi_hostadapter" line got inserted,
but I'm presuming the new stuff will "just work" with USB hard drives,
etc.

Thanks!
