your problem is not Xen specific, but a general Linux tool misunderstanding.

"modprobe" simply expects the module name, that is "dm-snapshot", without any 
suffix or prefixed directory. "insmod" on the other hand is responsible for 
loading a singe module from a file and expects the full path name.
