Old man pages (1996).  They date from the time that the kernel and
glibc shared the kernel headers via a symlink.  Linus has changed his
mind since then but the modutils man pages were never updated.

modutils provides include/module.h as part of the source package.  That
file is not installated anywhere, nobody outside modutils has required
it.  If you want to invoke the modutils syscalls yourself, take a copy
of include/module.h from modutils into your source tree.  But don't be
surprised if the interface changes under you.  modutils will know about
any interface changes, other packages will have to cope with the
version skew themselves.
