Question PID display command for kernel modules

OMG, for the life of me I cannot remember this command...

basicly I cant remember the command that will display what PID is using a certain module

rmmod eepro100
output: eepro100: Device or resource busy

so now i need to do a [COMMAND] eepro100 in order to find out what PID to kill so therefor I can unload the module

I know its simple, I just cannot remember that damn command...

Thanks ya'll

not sure if it's a PID you're looking for. The device or resource is busy probably means that a lot of kernel stuff is dependant on that module.

Why can't you just take the network down and then unload the module with 'modprobe -r <module>' ?
