       - Remove /lib/modules/boot support.

 module-init-tools (3.3-pre11-4) unstable; urgency=high
   * Try harder to clean up the diversions. Apparently some old dpkg version
     used to leave around diverted files which got removed. (Closes: #428650)
   * Clean up after modutils by deleting /etc/rcS.d/S20modutils.
   * Make update-modules complain about its uselessness.
 module-init-tools (3.3-pre11-3) unstable; urgency=high
   * The modutils diversions must be removed in postinst, because preinst
     is run before the old files are removed. (Closes: #428650)
 module-init-tools (3.3-pre11-2) unstable; urgency=high
   * Disabled modutils compatibility, now the package conflicts with it.
   * Removed the modutils_extension patch and extra/fixmanpages, which
     dealt with modutils.
   * New patch insmod-segv: prevents insmod from segfaulting if called without
     an explicit path, courtesy of Mikko Ylinen. (Closes: #425458)
   * Add .orig to the list of forbidden extensions. (See #295755.)
   * Removed from preinst the code needed to upgrade from pre-sarge versions
     of the package (< 3.1-pre2-1).
   * Stop installing the TODO, FAQ, generate-modprobe.conf and modprobe.devfs
     files because they are useless.
   * New patch use_blacklist_doc to document the --use-blacklist command line
 module-init-tools (3.3-pre11-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream release. (Closes: #421115)
   * Removed patch hotplug_blacklist: /etc/hotplug/blacklist.d/ is not
     supported anymore.
   * Removed backported patches: cmdline_opts_fix, format_64bit_fix.
   * Depend on docbook-to-man, since pre-build man pages are not in the
     upstream tree anymore.
   * Fixed misc documentation issues. (Closes: #348121, #401972, #401973)
   * New alias: binfmt-0064 [x86_64]. (Closes: #421978)
   * Removed alias: binfmt-332 [x86].
