/etc/modules is not where you should put it create a file /etc/modprobe.d/nvnet and put the alias eth0 nvnet in there then modprobe should see it when booting. Worse case rename/delete the forcedeth from the /lib/modules/'uname -r'/kernel/drivers/net/ directory using the output of the uname -r to find the correct directory name.
