I'll have to check that, probably RSN, but in the meantime, I got
confused by your explanation and my tour of the file system. While it
was counter-intuitive right from the start that modules should be
loaded after sysctl tried to use them, I see this in /etc/rcS.d:


S30procps is the script where /etc/sysctl.conf gets evaluated, so it
seems to me that /etc/sysctl.conf already gets evaluated *after*, not
before, modules were loaded.

Kind regards,
