Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E non-conf-file-in-modprobe.d

Files in /etc/modprobe.d should use filenames ending in .conf. modprobe silently ignores all files which do not match this convention.

If the file is an example containing only comments, consider installing it in another location as files in /etc/modprobe.d are read each time modprobe is run (which is often at boot time).

Refer to https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2009/03/msg00119.html for details.
