That seems to be orthogonal as I'm not adding or removing extensions to it but
simply preserving the existing behavior for both old init and systemd, if
anything just documenting the existing behavior. 

In the last series the modules stuff was discussed and it was pointed out a
desire to share and retain only one source for the list of modules, this is why
I addressed this in this series.  A few regressions were mentioned that seemed
to still exist with auto module loading on Linux, this is why this is

If this support gets added to the tool stack then both systemd and old
init can just remove this part, however the modules xen.conf service unit
file might to then be replaced by an ExecStartPre. The *right* solution
at least for Linux, as documented in the README is to really fix auto
module loading. For Linux at least it would help have documented on the
wiki the exact bug numbers for those issues that exist where auto module
loading does not work.
