print_modules currently uses pr_cont to print all module information.
This has the side effect of printing lots of modules on one very long
line. This makes copy/pasting oopses more effort if manual wrapping is
required. Place a reasonable limit (80 chars) on the number of modules
on each line.

Does this bother anyone else or am I the only one who hates dealing
with the long lines of "Modules linked in"?

Never bothered me, but I'm a bit odd :) I worry more about the effect
on machine parsing.

Yes, that was a concern I had as well, but the module list seems to get
wrapped eventually (although at a much longer length) so it seems like
if machine parsing can handle one wrap it can handle multiple wraps.
