    Giacomo will probably answer definitively, but I believe he is already
    generating all of the PCI, PNP, and module probes by script. We're planning
    to ship the probe table generator with a future CML2 version.

    Which is why the "standalone" mode of the autoconfigurator turns all that
    stuff modular. The autoprobe doesn't, it's intended to generate a facilities
    report that can be used to tune by hand.
