Conversely couldn't you write a test that detects known good
drivers via the loaded kernel module and make the test dependent
on their presence? Rather than running the test and not knowing
if it will pass or fail, it makes more since to only run the test when
we know it SHOULD pass and then if it fails we have identified
a regression.
