NAME
       modules.dep.bin, modules.depmodules.dep -- Module dependency information

DESCRIPTION
       The  modules.dep.bin  as generated by module-init-tools depmod, lists the dependencies for
       every module in the directories under /lib/modules/version, where modules.dep.bin (or  the
       human  readable version modules.dep) is also located. It is used by utilities such as mod-
       probe. The binary version will be used by default, if it was  generated	by  a  compatible
       version of depmod, with fallback to the generic modules.dep.

       These  files are not intended for editing or use by any additional utilities as their for-
       mat is subject to change in the future. You should use the modinfo(8)  command  to  obtain
       information  about  modules  in a future proof and compatible fashion rather than touching
       these files.
