ref-manual: Updated the module_autoload variable.
This variable has been replaced by the KERNEL_MODULE_AUTOLOAD variable. I updated the description to note that and to provide a cross-reference to the new variable.

- You can use this variable anywhere that it can be

- module recipe (e.g. a machine configuration file, a
- distribution configuration file, an append file for the

- Specify it as follows:
- <literallayout class='monospaced'>
- module_autoload_&lt;modname&gt; = "modname1 modname2 modname3"

- You must use the kernel module name override.

- Including <filename>module_autoload</filename> causes the
- OpenEmbedded build system to populate the
- <filename>/etc/modules-load.d/modname.conf</filename>
- file with the list of modules to be auto-loaded on boot.
- The modules appear one-per-line in the file.
- Here is an example of the most common use case:
- <literallayout class='monospaced'>
- module_autoload_modname = "modname"
- </literallayout>

- variable.
+ This variable has been replaced by the
