Aha, thanks, I think I got it:
Around module-init-tools-3.3-pre11/modprobe.c:1373, modprobe will
either error("") and return or if unknown_silent is set will exit(1).
unknown_silent is set with modprobe -q/-Q/--quiet/--silent which is set
via MODPROBE_OPTIONS in the acpid init script. This is only set if
VERBOSE is false.
So there's a different behavior in terms of exit status between:
modprobe --all foobar (exit 0)
modprobe --all --quiet foobar (exit 1)
This is quite problematic as --all is supposed to proceed and attempt
to load all modules, but in --quiet it stops as soon as a module can
not be loaded...
So I think I'll drop --quiet for now and report the bug against
