And just because you seem to be late in the conversation, I do not
plan on changing the file names, they are fine the way they are..
but if we do keep them the same, then we need to change how modules are
named... because for the most part, modules are named by bus/device...
If you really think that the module names should grow the prefix, then
we should change the module names to not include the bus attachment:
The acpi_pci and acpi_pcib attachments are a bit special as they use
classes to modify the underlying pci and pcib behavior..
