       modules.dep -- List of module dependencies

       The  modules.dep	 as  generated	by module-init-tools depmod, lists the
       dependencies for	 every	module	in  the	 directories  under  /lib/mod-
       ules/version, where modules.dep is.

       Blank  lines,  and  lines  starting  with  a  '#' (ignoring spaces) are
       ignored.	 Other lines are of the form "filename: [filename]*",  listing
       the complete dependencies for the first filename in descending order.

       For  example,  if  /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/a.ko depended on b.ko and
       c.ko in the same directory, and c.ko depended on b.ko as well, the file
       might look like:

       # This is a comment.
       /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/a.ko: /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/c.ko /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/b.ko
       /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/c.ko: /lib/modules/2.5.53/kernel/b.ko

       This  file  is used by modprobe to know the order to load modules (they
       are loaded right to left, and removed left to right).
