For example, let's say that I'm packaging a module named "foo", with source
package name "foo". This is described by a control file as usual. It builds
a binary package called "foo-source", which essentially only contains an
archive of the module sources in /usr/src/foo.tar.bz2. The actual module is
built from the contents of that archive. The control.modules.in file is
processed by the module-assistant rules during module build, and renamed
to "control" (by replacing placeholders with the actual kernel version).
This generated control file describes the resulting binary module package
