I don't know if there is a "proper" place to do it, but I wounder
if you could put a script to do it in /etc/sysconfig/modules? You
would have to check exactly when they are run, but I suspect it
would be between the mounting of the root file system and the
mounting of network file systems.
Another way to do it would be to create an init script to do it. You
could then control when it is run, and it would not vanish because
of an update.
