Right now it's indeed a single source file module.

However, we are working on wireless support for gelic (the virtual network
device supports both wired and wireless), which will add a second source file.

So you want us to rename
  1. gelic_net.c -> ps3_gelic_net.c
  2. gelic_wireless.c -> ps3_gelic_wireless.c
while the actual kernel module will be ps3_gelic.{o,ko}, right?

With kind regards,
