$ 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.
