Description of problem:
Trying modinfo on any module under 2.6 kernel (from rawhide) gives a
no module by that name found error.  I guess it's not updated
correctly to work with .ko module extension.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modinfo radeon

Actual Results:  modinfo: radeon: no module by that name found

Expected Results:  radeon module information

I'll have to check, but I could have sworn that this required a kernel
patch to work right anyway (i.e., to see any modinfo.)

Created attachment 97092 [details]
strace modinfo radeon &> radeon.log

I'm attaching the log of 'strace modinfo radeon'.
It shows that modinfo actually finds the module, as it does lstat64 the right
file, but find nothing.

On the other hand, if I do 'modinfo
/lib/modules/2.6.1-1.43/kernel/drivers/char/drm/radeon.ko' I see the real
module info.

So should be a silly problem in modinfo.  I had a look into code, but more
complicated than a 5 minute fix.  So the search is missing the module.
