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

  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.
