: Those files don't need to be marked standard to allow module building..
: Either you can compile the *_if.c file as a seperate module and depend
: upon them, or compile the *_if.c into the module directly...
: Many other modules do not require their *_if.m files to be marked
: standard...
: It looks like some others could possibly be cleaned up and not made
: standard, such as eisa...

Sadly, these do need to be standard to actually load the drivers.  The
reason they are all marked standard is because it is hard to get the
inter-module loading issues if they aren't.  The problem is best
illustrated by pccard.  pccard provides interfaces to cbb to call, as
well as calls cbb interfaces.  Using a module depends makes it so you
can't unload either of the modules...
