I have applied to my review and testing queue with some changes:
- device names are left unchanged (it's ABI, we can't just change
device name to whatever we want if we can't guarantee that doesn't
break anything, at least I can't)
- labels should mark what is expected to be executed when code chooses that path
- I split module authors to two macro calls (this makes slightly
better readability in the sources and when one calls modinfo)

Can you check if it's okay with your devices and works as expected?

If everything okay, take my them from review-andy branch, add commit
message to where it's missed and send a new version.

Thanks.
