Hello list,

I wasn't sure how to report this but I figured the mailing list was a
good bet.

In man/depmod.d.xml it says "/usr/lib/depmod.d" is one of the
directories depmod will check for configuration files, but
tools/depmod.c says "/lib/depmod.d" instead. I believe the sources are
correct and the documentation is in error because modprobe uses a
similar layout and its source and doc are consistent about

Trivial fix but I'm sending a patch anyway!
