As Thomas pointed out, that is probably the easy bit. We need a test
system which has access to these modules, and udev in order to get
them loaded. Do any of the current boot farms support this?

What might be possible is to work on top of the new test initiative,
kicked off at the last summit.  That is going to need a more capable
rootfs, so might provide a usable basis. We also need some tests, so
that once we have finished booting, do we at least have all the
devices we expect in /sys. That would of at least found the recent SPI
FLASH breakage.
