module weirdness

:But on booting I get:
:can't re-use a leaf (if_fwe_debug)!
:module_register: module firewire/fwe already exists!
:linker_file_sysinit "if_fwe.ko" failed to register! 17
:fwe0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
:        ch 1 dma -1

    Very odd.  It should not have even tried to load the module since
    you built the driver in.
