kerneld has a replacement in the kernel itself:

Run menuconfig, go to "Loadable module support"
You're looking for the option "Kernel module loader"

Help info from it:

Normally when you have selected some drivers and/or file systems to
be created as loadable modules, you also have the responsibility to
load the corresponding modules (using the programs insmod or
modprobe) before you can use them. If you say Y here however, the
kernel will be able to load modules for itself: when a part of the
kernel needs a module, it runs modprobe with the appropriate
arguments, thereby loading the module if it is available. (This is a
replacement for kerneld.) Say Y here and read about configuring it
in Documentation/kmod.txt.

So I'm pretty sure we don't need kerneld at all anymore and it's just inside
modutils in case you can't use the kernel based auto loader.
