       modules.dep.bin, modules.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
       modprobe.  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 format 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
