Sorry for the late answer. My home ADSL connexion is broken and I'm
quite busy at my day job.
The short answer is no.
I hacked the kernel-side module loading code to add dependency and I
had sth that worked at least in simple cases but needs lots of
cleanup. I didn't check complex cases like cycles in the dependencies
I also tried your approach which if my memory served well involved no
changes kernel-side but changes in the makefiles. I gave up because I
needed to dynamically generate part of the makefile and didn't know
how to do that (or if make supports this).
