We are barking up the wrong tree. The issue that I was aware of was the modules not loading.
However, the specific extension that you are trying to use does appear to have problems.
I was able to "see" the issue by using:

alsaconf 2>/tmp/errors

This led me to see that a find command was failing as an option being used is not supported by busybox's find.

So, no problem, I loaded findutils.tcz and all should be well. Although that would imply that findutils.tcz should be a required dependent of alsaconf.

Not so, even more of a surprise to me is that alsaconf has been modified to specifically call busybox find !
Editing out that specific busybox call together with the findutils.tcz loaded alsaconf could finally proceed.

This is an extension issue and not a base bug. Will forward to maker.

As a follow-up...

$ tce-load -iw alsaconf.tcz
$ sudo alsaconf

Should now work as expected.

To answer your question. 3.7 was using a modules.dep file that is consistent with gnu depmod.
3.8 uses busybox's depmod. Some extensions that require modules will have to have depmod.tcz as a dependent and likely a startup script to call depmod -a.
