I installed trunk OpenWrt on my modem and because its flash memory is only 4MB, i'm trying to use extroot.
It finally works only if i insmod kernel module ltq-hcd-danube before script /lib/preinit/50_determine_usbroot is run,
So i wanted to have an advice what is the best place to insmod the module, and if possible if this workaround can be incorporated in trunk and where ?

Thank you for your answers


I finally found the solution, which i think, is the cleanest.
Just add a symbolic link in /etc/modules-boot.d :
cd /etc/modules-boot.d
ln -s /etc/modules.d/ltq-hcd-danube

The discussion might have continued from here.
