No bright ideas. Why do you want the driver to be modular in the first
place? This is a high performance adapter, not a embedded system. Does
this ~1MB of memory use really matter? Folks who care can rebuild their
kernel and disable the device support with a boolean flag.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I've never seen a reason to break up vendor drivers
for high performance NICs into multiple modules.
