Ah, neat.

Regarding the provides, it's "kernel-modules", not "kernel-module",
right?

Some kernel module packages at fedora.us and probably elsewhere provide
"kernel-module", based on some discussions earlier this year.  No
problem changing that but it would would like to be sure about the exact
provides and some insurance that it won't change tomorrow :)

Also, some discussion about implementing module packages which need
modifications in modules.conf is at
https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=503 in case someone's
interested.
