modules.pcimap and 8139's

From: Jeff Garzik (

Various tools need to pick "8139cp.c" instead of "8139too.c" based on
PCI revision, which is not in modules.pcimap nor struct pci-device-id.
grep for 'pci_rev' in both those files to see the PCI revision checks
hand-coded currently in the drivers.

What is the preferred -2.4- solution?

a) append pci rev and mask to the end of each modules.pcimap line, and
update struct pci_device_id?
b) create new file modules.pci_rev?
c) other?

Distros at least need to solve this for 2.4...
