Dynamic libraries for kmod.
The goal of the libkmod library is to offer to other programs the
needed flexibility and fine grained control over insertion, removal,
configuration and listing of kernel modules. Using the library, with
simple pieces of code it's possible to interact with kernel modules
and then there's no need to rely on other tools for that. This is a
thing lacking on Linux for a while and it's one of the items in the
Plumber's Wish List for Linux. Quoting it:
provide a proper from module-init-tools:
Early boot tools, installers, driver install disks want to access
information about available modules to optimize boot up handling.
