[hsflinux] modprobe of hsf modules brings system to its knees

After removing the probeall lines in /etc/modules.d/hsf my hsf modules
would no longer automatically load, despite having PCI/USB hotplug. I
ended up adding the modules to the /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
file so they would get loaded on boot (like Jakob Schiotz suggested).
Seems to be working fine now. Seems like the problem I was experiencing
before might be related to some module dependency problem that causes
modprobe to get caught in a loop and therefore brings the system to a
crawl. Here is the order of the modules I added to the autoload file
(order of increasing dependency):

Thanks again for the assistance.
