Is it possible to have more than one driver for one purpose (eg. USB) included in the Linux kernel?

If so, then how does the kernel decide which one to load?

  • AFAIK it is impossible to have two different drivers for one purpose in the Linux kernel. – psimon Jun 21 '14 at 15:49
  • yes it is impossible to have both controlling the device but you can have both loaded/registered to the kernel so I wanna know how does the kernel decide – Ahmad Aabed Jun 21 '14 at 22:22
