[opensuse-autoinstall] insmod modules not considered?

we are passing some modules to the AY installer with insmod= via our
pxelinux.cfg. But it seems that only some are loaded before the automatic
hardware detection starts, and I don't understand which ones are and which
ones are not.

E.g. we have

insmod=3w-9xxx insmod=scsi_mod insmod=dock insmod=libata insmod=ata_piix
insmod=mptbase ...

But only the 3ware controller is preloaded, the SATA not. On console 3 I
insmod /modules/arc4.ko
insmod /modules/3w-9xxx.ko
insmod /modules/mptbase.ko
Starting hardware detection...

Thus, all the modules for the SATA controller are ignored. Same happens
with "insmod=tg3 insmod=e1000" which loads the tg3 module, but not the e1000.

What am I doing wrong here?
