rmmod [-f] [-w] [-s] [-v] [modulename]
rmmod is a trivial program to remove a module (when module unloading
support is provided) from the kernel. Most users will want to use
modprobe(8) with the -r option instead.
Print messages about what the program is doing. Usually rmmod
prints messages only if something goes wrong.
This option can be extremely dangerous: it has no effect unless
CONFIG_MODULE_FORCE_UNLOAD was set when the kernel was compiled.
With this option, you can remove modules which are being used, or
which are not designed to be removed, or have been marked as unsafe
Normally, rmmod will refuse to unload modules which are in use.
With this option, rmmod will isolate the module, and wait until the
module is no longer used. Nothing new will be able to use the
module, but it's up to you to make sure the current users
eventually finish with it. See lsmod(8)) for information on usage
Send errors to syslog instead of standard error.
Show version of program and exit.
