The idea is to make them alphabetically ordered. currently even main list
is a mess. And I have no idea why mod_devicetable.h is so special, a few
bus headers (e.g., i2c, spi) consider that just as yet another header while
actually ain't using it (in the respective _headers_).

That said, I would take the sorting change as a separate one that can be
done after this.
