Default Bug#624692: initramfs-tools: silently fails to include modules if modules.dep is not current

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.98.8
Severity: normal


When a kernel module is added to /lib/modules/$VERSION (e.g. an
out-of-tree module built after the usual kernel) and 'depmod -a
$VERSION' has not run, such that modules.dep is not current, the call to
'modprobe --set-version="$VERSION" --ignore-install --quiet
--show-depends' will silently fail, not including the module no matter
which configuration options were given in /etc/initramfs-tools/*.

Possible solution: add an appropriate error handling and error message
at /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions line 47ff
