Can we make this a loadable module and group it with the other
ethernet drivers?

We use a fixed rootfs image to test the kernel. For simplicity we don't construct a rootfs or load any modules. We just test the kernel image. So for us every defconfig we use needs to be set to y to use the upstreamed kernel.

Plus, how do you NFS mount a rootfs if the ethernet driver is a loadable module?
