Unless installed "igb_uio" won't be available to use with "modprobe", not sure
about adding that detail, what do you think?

This is only required if there is no iommu on the system, right? Won't ena will
work without this parameter on the system that has iommu?

I did not add it. In current version this information is already present:

I will prepare next version, that will clarify it.
