I check the devices supported by multiple drivers, and normally
I comment both probes (This is why I have so much probes commented.
These drivers are marked in my db '## 2x').
Sometime I arbitrary choice a device.
I.e. in FS 'autofs4' is prefered to 'autofs'.
In the case of USB, two driver 'register' the uhci cards.
I prefer USB_UHCI_ALT to USB_UHCI (arbitrary choice).

I would like comments and correction to these choices.
(The kernel is to big to know all, and the sources are not
usefull in some cases)

BTW the database is available to all. If somebody need it
I can confirm that the database is complete (for MODULES_TABLE
The database have these informations:
- type (pci, usb, pnp,...)
- device ID (ev. with class) or class ID, or interface ID or function ID, or both
- configuration variable
- source (the kernel file where the device is defined)
(for non autoprobe use, you should discard the ev. first '#', CONFIG = "_" means 'always',
in pci the "!" before the source means from MODULES_TABLE, the other pci are detected by other
methods (no so accurate)
