    | How would options be passed when loading? Some modules require that

    Possibility, why not just have a file, /proc/mods/initial, that you
    write the initial kernel module options to, e.g.

    # echo "ne2000 io=0x300 irq=11" > /proc/mods/initial

    Then you load the module using:

    # mkdir /proc/mods/ne2000/

    although you could skip this necessity and just load the module when
    someone writes to /proc/mods/initial.

    Just a thought.
