I believe this isn't that easy. Here is why: iff you look at the
ice1712/ice1724 driver, it doesn't detect dependencies when modprobed;
that is, it loads, for example, ac97 codec and ak4xxx driver even if
the card doesn't have any of that. Is it even possible to detect
dependencies after modprobing?
