    That's a very good question. The tdfxfb module has no parameters. It would be
    ideal if the tdfxfb mainatiner would add some MODULE_PARM lines for all the
    parameters and move the code from tdfxfb_setup that does work into tdfxfb_init.

    I think a valid work-around for you is to use fbset after you load the module
    to set the resolution. Does that work?
