DSA is typically built into the kernel and few people have actually
tried to make modules work with it. You may have to play with
EPROBE_DEFER and similar to satisfy the ordering. I would start with
building these drivers in the kernel, make them work together, and then
see what is missing to make it work in a modular build configuration.
