Can't make an up-to-date 16.04 systemd load the following 3 modules on boot, manual loading works, had no issues on 14.04:

root@toto:/etc/modprobe.d# cat /etc/modules-load.d/watchdog.conf 
# Hardware watchdog driver modules loading

Thought it might come from the blacklist so I commented out the lines:

root@toto:/etc/modprobe.d# grep -R i2c
blacklist.conf:# blacklist i2c_i801
root@toto:/etc/modprobe.d# grep -R iTCO
blacklist-watchdog.conf:# blacklist iTCO_wdt
watchdog.conf:options iTCO-wdt heartbeat=10 nowayout=0

But no more luck, it's driving me crazy!

root@toto:/etc/modprobe.d# systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service

Logs looks strange:

root@toto:/etc/modprobe.d# journalctl -b1 -o cat -u systemd-modules-load.service
Stopped Load Kernel Modules.
