You can pick any file under /etc/modprobe.d/*, for example
/etc/modprobe.d/I-want-my-ieee1394-back. In fact since
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist is used by hwdata and editing it will make
the next hwdata update either not use its new config file or move away
your entries the preferred location would be an invented filename.
