Please see the [PATCH-RFC] README 1ST file.

Name: KBUILD_MODNAME define for build system
Author: Kai Germaschewski
Status: Experimental

D: This patch adds a -DKBUILD_MODNAME to the kernel compile, which
D: contains the base of the module name which is being built.
D: - Some sreorganization of the c_flags since they're needed for
D:   generating modversions (.ver) and compiling
D: - Use the right KBUILD_MODNAME also when the user just wants a .i/.s/.lst 
D:   file for debugging and also when generating modversions
D: - It looks like with your current approach you can't have a ',' or '-' in
D:   KBUILD_MODNAME - however, that means that KBUILD_MODNAME is not quite
D:   right for passing module parameters for built-in modules on the command
D:   line, it would be confusing to pass parameters for ide-cd as 
D:   ide_cd.foo=whatever. So that part could use a little more thought.
D: - If you think your module_names trick makes a noticable difference, feel
D:   free to re-add it.
D: - It's possible that objects are linked into more than one module - I 
D:   suppose this shouldn't be a problem, since these objects hopefully
D:   don't have a module_init() nor do they export symbols. Not sure if your
D:   patch did handle this.
