In some cases there are different sets of compiled-in kernel modules.
This patch allows to keep and use additional "blacklist" files for unique
kernels to keep the hotplug of trying to load nonexistent modules.
Differentiation based on `uname -a` information. "blacklist" files are stored in
`uname -a`-name-based directories in /etc/hotplug/blacklist.d . These
directories are automatically created by hotplug in case of their's absence at
first kernel boot.
I suppose this (or this kind of idea) will be useful for someone's use. :-)

separate blacklists (in addition to main blacklist) for hotplug-2004_09_23-alt17
I think this won't be fixed as hotplug is obsolete; back then, one could do that
with our custom modutils and if-clauses which were supported. AFAIK these
aren't supported with module-init-tools; if the need arises again, please
consider looking at udev.
