How do I get more information about a kernel module, like a long description?

For example, I can see kernel modules like lp or hid, but those short codes do not mean anything useful to me.

OK, found it. The command modinfo gives available information on a module, though it seems only what is available, so e.g. modinfo snd_seq gives me a long description, but modinfo lp does not, probably depending on whether the developers included the information or not.
