You do not understand the _cause_ for the rename.
hcd stands for Host Controller Device. The names mark them as that.
Now you can argue, that all the SCSI controller modules do not have
HBC (host bus controller) in their name - and then look at the
different naming of the other scsi modules:
scsi_mod.o sd_mod.o sg.o sr_mod.o st.o
Also not very intuitiv. We could put them in different subdirs...
