It never occurred to me that autoloading would work at all for this
driver, I always just load the module explicitly by listing
in /etc/modules. What triggers (or is supposed to trigger) autoloading?

That is only to do with making sure the node gets called /dev/xen/evtchn
(presumably it would be /dev/evtchn, now /dev/xen-evtchn, otherwise).
