No, this is actually correct.  The _ORDERED variants actually accept a
SI_ORDER_* value to determine how drivers contained in a single .ko file
are registered (in particular if you have several drivers in a .ko file
you typically want the "top-most" driver to attach last so that all the
other drivers are ready once the actual device is attached).
