One thing would be very good to have: non-manifest sections in modules
that describe what devices the particular module is good for. For
PCI, AGP and CardBus, these are PCI device IDs; for ISA PnP these are
PnP device IDs; for ISA it probably needs to be actual code; there
should be equivalent things for NuBus, MCA and what have you.
In Genesis I was intending to use these to feed the kernel the
appropriate device drivers.
