Hello, after the recent update of mkinitcpio i realized a new hook was added to the default configuration: "modconf".
Currently i only use the "base" hook and load the necessary modules like so:
MODULES="ahci sd_mod ext4 i915"
This produces a decent initramfs.
Is it recommended to add the new "modconf" hook, and what is it good for?

Do a mkinitcpio -H modconf and find out.
I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.
$ mkinitcpio -H modconf ==> Help for hook 'modconf': This hook installs modprobe configuration files from /etc/modprobe.d and /usr/lib/modprobe.d.
As i have a few configuration options in those directories, i added the hook now. The recommendation is to add "modconf" if you need the configuration options.
This hook might be a good candidate to merge into the "base" hook, because /usr/lib/modprobe.d contains configuration options on a fresh installation.
