1	What:		/sys/module
2	Description:
3		The /sys/module tree consists of the following structure:
4	
5		/sys/module/MODULENAME
6			The name of the module that is in the kernel.  This
7			module name will always show up if the module is loaded as a
8			dynamic module.  If it is built directly into the kernel, it
9			will only show up if it has a version or at least one
10			parameter.
11	
12			Note: The conditions of creation in the built-in case are not
13			by design and may be removed in the future.
14	
15		/sys/module/MODULENAME/parameters
16			This directory contains individual files that are each
17			individual parameters of the module that are able to be
18			changed at runtime.  See the individual module
19			documentation as to the contents of these parameters and
20			what they accomplish.
21	
22			Note: The individual parameter names and values are not
23			considered stable, only the fact that they will be
24			placed in this location within sysfs.  See the
25			individual driver documentation for details as to the
26			stability of the different parameters.
27	
28		/sys/module/MODULENAME/refcnt
29			If the module is able to be unloaded from the kernel, this file
30			will contain the current reference count of the module.
31	
32			Note: If the module is built into the kernel, or if the
33			CONFIG_MODULE_UNLOAD kernel configuration value is not enabled,
34			this file will not be present.
