All reports of non-conf-file-in-modprobe.d for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:
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).
