Simply the name of the module.  For example (in between the dashes):

parport
parport_pc
lp

You don't.  'depmod' and 'modprobe' take care of that.

So put 'bcm5700' on a line by itself in /etc/modules.

modprobe computes it based on the name of the kernel that is currently
running.  The beginning of the location is /lib/modules/`uname -r`/.
