Any dep which actually allows us to run "make dep" _at most once_ for
every kernel version and then forget about the matter, like "make" was
intended to be. Actual dependencies that get rid of autoconf.h and
recompile only what's really necessary - configure one more driver in
and recompile _that driver_.

Perhaps I'll volunteer to implement that.
