How do you add Requires for the kmod-<package> if you don't have them in 
a custom kmodtool script?

I seem to remember when I added Requires to the SPEC file for the kmod's 
I tried to build they were ignored. Is there a more convenient/correct 
way to pass Requires from a SPEC file to the kmodtool script?
