I recall reading a few months ago about a plan to merge ALL of the
existing hardware detection routines into one lump, in order to
consolidate work and effort. The proposal was met with acceptance by many
(if not all) of the major developers (Mandrake, Redhat, Suse, Turbo)
You might want to do a search on LWN (www.lwn.net) or Linuxtoday, or
elsewhere. I did a quick look and didn't find it, but I know I read about
please post if you do find a link to it.
