Subjectixj.o vs ixj_cs.o
If CONFIG_PCMCIA=y, CONFIG_PHONE!=n and CONFIG_IXJ=m, the resultant
ixj.o will support the (PCMCIA) internet phonecard, provided it is
insmod(8)ed as ixj_cs.o.

As such, were make modules_install (iff the above config) to:

mkdir $(MODDIR)/kernel/drivers/telephony/pcmcia
ln -s ../ixj.o $(MODDIR)/kernel/drivers/telephony/pcmcia/ixj_cs.o

things would Just Work.

But that just doesn't seem like the right solution.

Looks like were $(TOPDIR)/drivers/telephon/pcmcia to exist with
a suitable makefile to cp ../ixj.o ixj_cs.o iff the above config
things would also just work.

But I suspect ixj.c needs to be broken out, perhaps to ixj.c,
ixj-main.c and pcmcia/ixj_cs.c? Or just a pcmcia/ixj_cs.c which
links against ../ixj.o?

What is the proper solution?

(And, for that matter, is this essentially the same problem the drm
tree has wrt modules?)
