It's the opposite: "modprobe -r i915" will remove drm.ko,
drm_kms_helper, i2c-algo-bit and video, but won't remove snd_hda_intel
(and if you don't remove it first, it will complain that i915.ko is
still in use).

I think the dependency is magically tracked by depmod when it sees the
Audio driver uses a symbol exported by i915.ko. But a "modinfo
snd_hda_intel" doesn't show i915.ko on the "depends" section, which is
strange. I'm also not an expert on this area...
