Yeah, see the man page for update-modules... Debian uses a wrapper
script to modify kernel module boot-time info so the package management
tool doesn't blow away your locally configured stuff in
/etc/modutils/aliases when major upgrades touch /etc/modules.conf

Works pretty good, but it's a little weird going back and forth between
a Debian and Red Hat machine if you're not used to it.
