Here is one thing we don't have standardized across the entire Linux
distribution landscape.

What you need is a project that will take the top 10 distributions, and do
this however each distribution does their thing:

o identify the current kernel running (you're going to use the kernel
you're running, right?)

o download the kernel source for the running kernel

o install the source in some temporary location

o compile against the downloaded kernel source

o install the module under /lib/modules

o load the module (with the corect optional parameters)

Now what we need is someone to create the project, and get the community to
point to that project for source available external driver modules.

And look! No kernel modifications!
