I also had trouble to interpret the message and because I was lazy I just
added the kmod-static-nodes to the sysinit runlevel.
After searching a bit I found that this was added due to bug #477856, but
reading this as well as the release notes for kmod I am still not sure if
this is needed in any case or just if there is a modular kernel etc.
I am cc'ing one of the kmod maintainers maybe he can explain what is meant
@Samuli: You have added the elog message to kmod-14-r1. Can you please give
some more information about when kmod-static-nodes is required to be in the
sysinit runlevel? Thanks in advance.
