    One possibility is to do that with symbol_request() and friends. That
    would not be pretty though, imho.

    DVB subsystem uses that currently to load frontend modules dynamically,
    see dvb_attach() and dvb_frontend_detach() in
    drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvbdev.h and
    drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb_frontend.c.
