Our kernel is build with module loading disabled at present.

modprobing the driver when userspace is ready is a neat hack that we
could use for now. However, the driver will need a mechanism that
tells it to bind to the hardware when it becomes available. The same
mechanism would be useful for the fsi driver to initiate a scan and
bind it's client drivers.
