surely the platform has SOME kind of enumeration (be it device tree,
SFI, or hardware based enumeration)
if that enumeration is hooked up properly, and the driver has the right
module alias... udev ought to be
autoloading modules correctly.
I would strongly suggest figuring out why the enumeration->udev path is
not working... everything else is going to be some
hacky, hard to maintain workaround.
