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