    $ grep MODULE_PARM CDCEther.c catc.c kaweth.c pegasus.c usbnet.c
    CDCEther.c:MODULE_PARM (multicast_filter_limit, "i");
    CDCEther.c:MODULE_PARM_DESC (multicast_filter_limit, "CDCEther maximum number of filtered multicast addresses");
    pegasus.c:MODULE_PARM(loopback, "i");
    pegasus.c:MODULE_PARM(mii_mode, "i");
    pegasus.c:MODULE_PARM_DESC(loopback, "Enable MAC loopback mode (bit 0)");
    pegasus.c:MODULE_PARM_DESC(mii_mode, "Enable HomePNA mode (bit 0),default=MII mode = 0");

    Note that this is exactly what I think.
    Each option is defined with a unique value used for all devices.

    /usr/src/linux/drivers/usb$ grep MODULE_PARM ../net/3c59x.c
    MODULE_PARM(debug, "i");
    MODULE_PARM(enable_wol, "1-" __MODULE_STRING(8) "i");
    MODULE_PARM(rx_copybreak, "i");

    In a sense the vortex is more flexible. Most options are defined by a
    single value but for a few you can pass a vector.
    NOTE that the 8 limit is only in the MODULE_PARM lines.

    But this flexibility is no more adapted.

    $ man nameif
    nameif renames network interfaces based on mac addresses.
    When no arguments are given /etc/mactab is read. Each line

    nameif solved a problem but not during the device activation (this is
    the difference between rename and name). Would not it be possible to add
    to hotplug a way to give back some advices to the kernel.

    kernel -> hotplug : I am going to insert this device.
    hotplug -> kernel : ok but use this options optionA,optionB,...

    You can then still use nameif during the register phase or eventually
    pass a directive earlier to avoid possible races.
