    Because MODULE_NAME then gets foobar.c !? which is not a
    usable/suitable prefix either? (The Makefile would create
    foobar_ as prefix)
    Or because you have to do it _before_ the #include of the
    module.h header, which is messy and error-prone?
    Hey, I really did think before I started modifying the
    makefile. And - the filename is not such a bad choice either
    in most cases. And the biggest advantage is that it works
    without changing any driver source.
