Bug Description

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Loadable_Modules still states modprobe --list works.

It appears --list has been deprecated, as it no longer works in Wily or Xenial.

The modprobe man page no longer provides any easy way to list all modules.

Please reintegrate --list or update man page with correct way to list all modules.

Also, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Loadable_Modules should be corrected to state --list no longer works + give other options for listing all modules.

The workaround - find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -type f -name "*.ko - seems very clunky.
