busybox modprobe ip_tables

no matter whether the modules exist or not, busybox will put module info into this file:
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep.bb

the file will not be made empty even the modules removed:
# modprobe -v -r ip_tables

# more modules.dep.bb
kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko symbol:ipt_unregister_table symbol:ipt_register_table symbol:ipt_do_table symbol:ipt_do_table symbol:ipt_unregister_table symbol:ipt_register_table


The modules should be put into the right place, such as:
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter

iptables tries to load ip_tables even though it is statically compiled in the kernel
