# modinfo does not need to output fields in a specified order.
# Instead, there are labelled fields.  We can use sort to make up for this.
# Other issues to beware of are the volatile nature of srcversion and vermagic,
# which change from kernel to kernel and can be disabled. 
# We grep to remove these.

#We expect they have ne2k-pci as a module.
