what are the effects of this on built in driver modules?  they'll have
their init routines run before autoconfig runs, right?  that seems to
be an issue...

i think having a class of builtin modules that are available during
autoconfig isn't a bad thing.  perhaps the right answer is infact to
the special case handling for MODULE_CLASS_SECMODEL to deal with
calling secmodel_register()/secmodel_deregister() by pushing these
calls into the mi_modcmd() calls inside the secmodules themselves.
