I'd vote for b), considering that in the future (Android 8) modprobe 
will be back.
Nikolaus, if you could create projects for /external/toybox and /build, 
then I'll put my patches there.
Note: There will be a new version of that modules.dep patch to build.

I think we should keep these changes on our side for a while before 
merging such things back to replicant, to see if we want them to stick.
