Dracut automatically copies over many important configuration files to
the initrd, and it's just a simple command to regenerate the initrd.  I
haven't specifically checked, but I would be surprised if modprobe.conf
weren't automatically copied into the initrd.  Dracut is fairly new, so
you probably won't get to enjoy it on servers for another year or so.
But you can look forward to it. :)
