I'm not OK with this.  It's called internally stmmac
beause it's based upon an ST Microelectronics chipset.

This is what happens when we have several sub drivers
based upon a top-level common chipset "library".

The problem you have is that just knowing the driver
doesn't tell you the dependencies, but that's a larger
scope generic problem that needs a high level solution
rather then something we should be hacking around with
name adjustments here and there.
