Sure enough, the tarball had a kernel, which had a file
of drivers -- scads of them!
/lib/modules/18.104.22.168/kernel/drivers/ contains folders
named block, cdrom, ide, pcmcia, scsi, and usb. My instinct is to
look first in pcmcia; that had tarballs named yenta_socket.ko.gz
and rsrc_nonstatic.ko.gz -- more tarballs!
It feels like I'm looking for the Maltese Falcon in a
nest of Russian dolls! And I won't know the Falcon when I see it

On the Internet, you can never tell who is a dog --
supposing you care -- but you can tell who has a mind.
