I've tried it as modules and inbuid and see no issues.
Issue with build happens if EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() not removed.

It's not expected and not supported to load more then one TI Net
driver at same hw, so modules also are just be loaded fine.

Why? It's to get rid of CONFIG options which were historically added,
but are not required now (and even can't be disabled of if disabled will
cause build failures) - result simplified build/Kconfig and code.

Best regards,
