ISTM that whether it's easy depends on whether your devices are adequately
represented in sysfs and the udev rules files. (I'm still using a script to
create /dev/dvb/*, although if I upgrade to drivers in a newer kernel or CVS,
I won't need that.)

No idea.

None at all, but you may want to tweak things in /etc/modprobe.d/ instead.
