A variation on what Darren said but leading to the same issue;
i.e. importance of bisection is the presence of only two files here.

Normally there should be a Makefile change and possibly a
Kconfig change (addition) that bind the driver in so it can be
built.

However, since those are not shown here, I can't tell if the use
of module.h makes sense, because I can't see if the Kconfig
is bool or tristate. So it goes beyond bisectability and also
impacts ability to properly review -- the "it" here being the
proper segmentation of a patch series.

Thanks,
Paul.
