Given a modules name, is there an easy way to locate it in "make

I am trying to locate information on
af_packet ... which has sprung up in /etc/modules ... what does it do
? ip_conntrack_ftp ... where is it in "make menuconfig" ?
I think CONFIG_PACKET is what you are looking for. In my config for a
2.4.18-14 kernel, It's under Networking Options .... Packet Socket.
Here is the help text.
The Packet protocol is
used by applications which communicate
directly with network devices without an intermediate network
protocol implemented in the kernel, e.g.
tcpdump. If you want them
to work, choose Y.
This driver is also available as a module called af_packet.o ( =
code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel
whenever you want). If you want to compile it
as a module, say M
here and read
Documentation/modules.txt; if you use modprobe
or kmod, you may also want to add "alias net-pf-17 af_packet"
If unsure, say Y.
Hope that helps
