Some structures defined in the code are put in an extra section in the
binary for enumeration. Those are:
#define __console __attribute__((used,
#define __cpu_driver __attribute__((used,__section__(".rodata.cpu_driver")))
#define __pci_driver __attribute__((used,__section__(".rodata.pci_driver")))
All others don't need to be "drivers"
Based on that, here's a patch that changes drivers that aren't console, pci,
or cpu, to obj.
The most common one was mainboard.c as a driver.
Boot tested with Tyan s2895.

PS. It looks like the rtl8168 driver ought to go somewhere more general in
