If you want more detailed information about a module (locations
of .text, .data, .bss etc), enable CONFIG_KALLSYMS in your kernel and
you'll see lots of goodness in the /sys/module/<YOUR MODULE>/sections

Do yourself a favor and browse
where Jon Corbet has written a really good series of articles about
modules and device drivers in the 2.6 kernel.
