       pcimodules  -  List  kernel  driver modules available for all currently
       plugged in PCI devices

       pcimodules [--classclass_id] [--classmaskmask] [--help]

       pcimodules lists all driver modules for all currently  plugged  in  PCI
       devices.   pcimodules  should  be  run at boot time, and whenever a PCI
       device is "hot plugged" into the system.  This can be done by the  fol
       lowing Bourne shell syntax:

		   for module in $(pcimodules) ; do

			modprobe -s -k "$module"


       When  a	PCI  device  is removed from the system, the Linux kernel will
       decrement a usage count on PCI driver module.  If this count  drops  to
       zero  (i.e.,  there  are  no PCI drivers), then the modprobe -r process
       that is normally configured to run from cron  every  few  minutes  will
       eventually remove the unneeded module.

       The  --class  and --classmask arguments can be used to limit the search
       to certain classes of PCI devices.  This is  useful,  for  example,  to
       generate  a  list of ethernet card drivers to be loaded when the kernel
       has indicated that it is trying to resolve an  unknown  network	inter

       Modules are listed in the order in which the PCI devices are physically
       arranged so that the computer owner can arrange things like having scsi
       device  0  be on a controller that is not alphabetically the first scsi

       --class class --classmask mask

       --class and --classmask limit the search to  PCI  cards	in  particular
       classes.   These  arguments are always used together.  The arguments to
       --class and --classmask can be given as hexadecimal numbers by  prefix
       ing  a  leading	"0x".  Note that the classes used by pcimodules are in
       "Linux" format, meaning the class value that you see with  lspci  would
       be  shifted  left  eight  bits, with the new low eight bits programming
       interface ID.  An examples of how to use class and  classmask  is  pro
       vided below.  --help, -h Print a help message and exit.

	      lists  all  modules  corresponding  to  currently plugged in PCI

       pcimodules --class 0x20000 --classmask 0xffff00
	      lists all modules corresponding to currently plugged in ethernet
	      PCI devices.

	      This file is automatically generated by depmod, and used by pci
	      modules to determine which modules correspond to which PCI IDs.

	      An  interface  to  PCI  bus  configuration space provided by the
	      post-2.1.82 Linux kernels. Contains per-bus subdirectories  with
	      per-card config space files and a devices file containing a list
	      of all PCI devices.
