Is IOProbeScore used to sort kexts for boot order? Maybe. It's used to choose from multiple kexts that can match on the same device.New Infos...
LiluFriend will not help at all and in any kind but I had an different Idea.
Why not just try it with an IOProbeScore?
Update coming tomorrow night.
I am thinking that maybe you can create an override kext for something that is known to load early. Maybe the IOPlatformExpert kext is a good candidate. In the case of Intel Macs, you would create a HackACPIPlatformExpert class which is based on AppleACPIPlatformExpert. Then you would override some methods to do what you want. The kext you create would return a IOProbeScore greater than what AppleACPIPlatformExpert returns.
This was a common practice for creating kexts to allow Mac OS X 10.4 to work on Old World Power Macs (like the Power Mac 8600). I seem to remember that some kexts couldn't be overridden that way but I don't remember the details.
