Hi Loïc.

The culprit appears to be inside initrd.  The 'init' script in the
initrd image is setting MODPROBE_OPTIONS="-qb".  This cascades down
through the init.d scripts and is picked up by /etc/init.d/acpid which

I've tested both 'unset MODPROBE_OPTIONS' and 'MODPROBE_OPTIONS=""' in
/etc/init.d/acpid and both methods work to start acpid when no modules
are available.
