Kernel module changed to autoload between 2016.4 and 2017.1

I have been using Petalinux 2016.4 to develop and debug a custom kernel module for Ultrascale.

It was added to the rootfs with:

petalinux-create -t modules --name <user-module-name> --enable

This module showed up in the rootfs but did not load at Linux start-up.


After updating to petalinux 2017.1, it is being loaded on Linux boot. I can however find no entry in /etc for module loading (/etc/modules or similar).


This is an out-of-tree module, found in /lib/modules/<uname>/extra/.


Anyone that can help with disabling this behavior? As it is, the module is done and only need to update a firmware it uses, I would like to not need to rebuild it all just to copy over a binary file.
