Personally I don't think having lots of files in one directory is really
much of a problem. The compelling reason for having one directory per driver
is to make it clear where you're allowed to have compile/include dependancies
eg generic shared code isn't allowed to depend on Xen driver code.

You should able to do that already. eg from the top level directory
in which you have a checkout

  mkdir build
  cd build
  srcdir=.. ../autogen.sh
