Ups, 10 points for you - I didn't consider that.

hmm, if it's just the ordering by bus type (but not within one bus
type), then it shouldn't be the big deal to fix, as I'll need one table
and register-loop per bus-type anyways.

By the way: how is there init order ensured with dynamically loaded
modules ? (for cases where there aren't explicit symbol dependencies)
