With module-init-tools being declared a dead project by its current maintainer, a new project has stepped up to take its place: kmod. This is intended to be a drop-in replacement, though deprecated functionality in module-init-tools has not been reimplemented.
If, upon upgrade, pacman moves /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf to a .pacsave, you should move it back.
The new module-init-tools 3.8 package changes the location of the configuration file: /etc/modprobe.conf is no longer read, instead /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf is used. Files in /etc/modprobe.d without a .conf suffix will be ignored in the future.
Please adjust your local configuration files after the update.

I have just upgraded my Ubuntu installation to 13.10 and it is working great. But yesterday I make a big mistake. In an attempt to uninstall dialer for my USB mobile broadband (Huawei EC176-2) I blacklisted module "option".
