   /sbin/modinfo ecb

The "description" line is helpful of course.  And the "alias" lines
identify which pieces of hardware will cause the module to be loaded,
for most device drivers.  (Some older device drivers don't have any
internal aliases and require help from external aliases to load
automatically when the corresponding hardware device is detected.
