The module should be MODULE_CLASS_DRIVER.  And there should be a

code should also have appropriate config_{init,fini}_component()
calls for inserting the device into the autoconfig database.

Since all probes have to be hard-coded this is very intrusive and I am
not sure a module makes sense.

True.  But in that case it should not be a module at all.

But shouldn't it still be a pseudo-device and not just an option?
