Yes, it is; there will be a second module 'sfc_ef100.ko'which this
 file will be linked into and which will set efx->type to one with
 an EF100 revision.

Although tbh I have been wondering about another approach to
 ethtool_get_drvinfo: we could have a const char [] in each driver's
 non-common parts, holding KBUILD_MODNAME, which ethtool_common.c
 could just reference, rather than looking at efx->type->revision
 and relying on the rest of the driver to set it up right.
Since it looks like I'll need to respin this series anyway, I'll try
 that and see if it works — it seems cleaner to me.
