yea, we'd have to put in a placeholeder ("unknown") so any output
messages wouldn't have problems, but looking through libdetect (or at
least the parts I'm using) all it really needs it the id's. I look
into making a build option.

Are you talking about :
I'm not sure where the mapping between module and device is in the
kernel source, anybody? If there is a ready list already in the
kernel source (other than looking at each module's source
individually), then we should have that as our reference. If it
isn't, then maybe the *.lst file that come with libdetect should be
