Only if the driver is at a stability level where giving it to users by
default is the right thing.  It's probably worth coordinating with ajax
on it, also, as having two drivers (avivo and radeonhd) saying they
drive the same hardware is going to lead to less than predictable
results

It's the same as the modaliases generated from kernel modules.  No real
documentation of it that I know of other than the module-init-tools
