        The modstat(8) command should be able to display the address
        at which a kernel module is loaded.
        Want to find the load address for a module.  Note that modstat(8)
        can't do it, even though it has all the information.
        This is a SMOP, as in sbin/modstat/main.c, the information
        is already retrieved from the kernel (ms->ms_addr) - it just
        needs to be displayed.  It's probably not needed by default,
        but maybe an option flag?

        I started in on some actual code for this,  and realized I
        don't have time to make it look nice enough, but it should
        be easy enough for someone with a few minutes at hand.
