1) Restore functionality which was lost in commit 876c7f5b.
   Again at boot time kmodloader can load all modules (/etc/modules.d/*)
   even if dependency information is completely missing.
   This functionality is important in case of hidden dependency (not symbol dependency).
   For example, in kernel 4.4.60 is hidden dependency between nf_nat_ipv6 and nf_conntrack_ipv6.
   We can't load nf_nat_ipv6 before nf_conntrack_ipv6 and modinfo do not show this dependency.
   Two sequential load attempts of nf_nat_ipv6 may not be enough (in my case it's definitely not enough).
   nf_nat_ipv4 has a similar problem.

2) Reduce count of attempts to load failed modules.
   Now kmodloader try to load failed modules after all others are loaded.

main_loader: Count of failed and successful attempts to load nf_nat_ipv6.ko (kernel 4.4.60) depend on ubox version:
