kmod 25 is out:

        https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/kmod/kmod-25.tar.xz

- Improvements
        - Add module signature to modinfo output

        - Add support for external directories in depmod: now there's a new
          "external" keyword parsed by depmod when calculating the dependen=
cies.
          It allows to add modules to other directories which are not relat=
ive
          to where the modules are commonly installed.  This results in
          modules.dep and friends now understanding absolute paths rather t=
han
          relative paths only. For more information see depmod.d(1).

        - Add support for CONFIG_MODULE_REL_CRCS

        - Add missing documentation references in man pages

        - Handle the case in which module has a .TOC symbol already while
          calculating dependencies

        - Improve testsuite and allow to use mkosi to run testsuite in diff=
erent
          distros
