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 exactly. @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. -- Regards Daniel Pielmeier
