Subject[PATCH] Re: BTTV detection broken in 2.4.0-test11-pre5

Well, I did a patch that does automagically convert MODULE_PARAM
stuff to __setup() functions - it even was in some 2.3.XX-acXX
but appearantly never got into Linus tree.

You may want to look at the "[PATCH] final support for MODULE_PARAM as
kernel commandline" thread, as well as "Re: Linux 2.3.18ac5". To look
at the newest version of the patch just grap the newest 2.3.18acXX,
I tried to rip it out and attached it (but I'm sure it does not
apply cleanly, but you get the idea).

It would be nice to hear from Linus if it was him, who rejected the
change or it was Alan who did not bother to send it.

Richard.
