How is this possible?


devd is likely re-loading the .ko for you.

What event is?
How devd guess module name for load?


Usually the kernel generates a no-driver found event, and that triggers devd to reload the driver based on its configuration scripts. Warner Losh, has done some work to integrate PCI device hints in the linker hints. I'm not sure if his work has been committed yet.

Try to stop devd temporarily.
