    Right that you're there, you might want also to add something like:

    *************************************************************************
    * Do not even try to report your problems with the Linux kernel to software
    * maintainers at linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org since they cannot do anything
    * about modules they do not have the source of. Reports your problems at:
    *
    * LIST-OF-BINARY-MODULES-DROPPERS-EMAIL-ADDRESSES
    *************************************************************************

    #define MODULE_CONTACT(...)
