  Alas, it is currently not possible for an LKM to install itself into
the autoconf system. I would like very much to have some time to put together
a proposal. (Does any other *BSD permit it?)

  Generally, it isn't such a big deal if you build in five or six brands
of card that you typically have on hand, and it is a lot easier to manage
one file (the kernel) than all of the LKMs as well.
