Nothing in the tree, but e.g. zsh has tab completion for module names
for kldload, based on the contents of /boot/kernel.

My intention in the long term is to have all kernels installed in
/boot/${KERN_IDENT} (e.g. /boot/GENERIC) and have the loader present a
list of available kernels, with the default being the one that was
installed last.
