Welcome to the initramfs stage of your journey! When the laptop needs
activation, it loads a different initramfs that among other things
loads the libertas module.

You need to get your /etc/modprobe.d/ files into the initramfs. For
your vanilla build, look into dracut-modules-olpc. If you're hoping to
get this integrated into a build with an alternative initramfs (hint:
Ceibal) that build will have a custom version of dracut-modules-olpc.

That is the right way. When the laptop is in secure mode, olpc.fth is
_ignored_, so no chance to set a kernel cmdline there.

An easier alternative might be to check for those flags under /sys,
and if they are there, rmmod/modprobe libertas  for example in
olpc-configure (so during early boot).
