Ok, I see what you mean now in

static struct rmi_function_handler *fn_handlers[] = {
#ifdef CONFIG_RMI4_F03
#ifdef CONFIG_RMI4_F11

I think we can actually make this more modular and more like other
drivers work:

If each of the sub-drivers gets changed to call
rmi_register_function_handler() on its own handler structure,
having some drivers as modules would just work.

It looks like the rmi_bus.c file was written to do it that way,
but for some reason the references to those drivers are all
in the same file.
