All reports of non-conf-file-in-modprobe.d for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

Files in /etc/modprobe.d should use filenames ending in .conf. modprobe currently warns about files which do not match this convention and at some point in the future the files will no longer be processed.

If the file is an example containing only comments, consider installing it in another location as files in /etc/modprobe.d are read each time modprobe is run (which is often at boot time).

Refer to for details.
