    No, nothing cute in udev itself, but it seems that all distros that I
    know of have a "load these modules now" type setting in their init
    scripts that can be used here.

    I can't think of a way to enforce this load order on the modules
    themselves due to the fact that OHCI might not even be needed for EHCI
    devices on UHCI (Intel) based chipsets :(

    Can anyone else?
