There's an /sbin/modinfo program that prints very similar information;
a simple application of find, modinfo, and (sed/awk/perl/...) could
easily produce an equivalent file.  Note that the description isn't
guaranteed to be useful, though:

{25} modutils% /sbin/modinfo -d w83781d
"W83781D driver"

It helps to know that this is an I2C driver, but there's not
necessarily any indication of this.
