I used to work on embedded systems which were built by essentially
bolting expansion cards onto standard reference systems, for some of
them we shipped distro kernels with the extra hardware supported by
adding modules.  No idea if there's practical examples for specific
PowerPC systems though.

The burden when you're breaking things is more on showing that there
isn't a problem anyway...
