Subject: The lkrg.service for systemd

You provide the lkrg.service file for systemd. It basically loads/unloads the 
LKRG module and currently has the following boot dependencies:

There's another service called systemd-modules-load.service which takes care
of loading any modules defined in /etc/modules or /etc/modules-load.d/ . It
has the following deps:

The difference here is ** vs. ** . According to[1] is a way earlier in the boot chain than In the 
case of my system, systemd-modules-load.service is started almost at the 
beginning of the boot phase, and the (which is in Before= in 
lkrg.service) is almost at the end of the boot process.

Wouldn't be better to use the same deps as in systemd-modules-load.service ?

What about other inits? Not all of the available init systems use this 
.service file. Maybe is it better to provide a file with the module name and 
place it under /etc/modules-load.d/ , so all the inits be supported? What do 
you think?
