Sidenote: actually this modalias/module loading issue is different

Oh, I'd been under the impression that it was the rewrite that was

IIRC issue has been there since when ACPI slave device support was added.

I have a partial fix for it in cf9eb39c6f7b ("spi: Fix modalias for ACPI enumerated SPI devices") and when doing similar change for i2c Rui pointed me that he has a better fix that takes care of _CID string and platform code too.
