What kind of output do you get when you do a modprobe -v?

Also, you might want to do a modprobe --show-depends on the module to 
see what kind of dependencies it had. Note that this may provide an 
empty list, which is possibly alright.

Another thing you can do is a modinfo on the module to see what is known 
about it.
