Do you have something akin to /sys/bus/sunv/devices/blah? With modalias
entries here and in the module the installer should be able to make the
connection between one and the other. For example for Xen virtual
devices we have:
        di32:~# cat /sys/bus/xen/devices/vif-0/modalias 
        di32:~# modinfo xen-netfront
        filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.26-1-686-bigmem/kernel/drivers/net/xen-netfront.ko
        alias:          xennet
        alias:          xen:vif
        license:        GPL
        description:    Xen virtual network device frontend
        vermagic:       2.6.26-1-686-bigmem SMP mod_unload modversions
So the xen:vif modalias ties into the alias on the module.
