    | Wow! Well, that's very convenient for driver writers, so I'm pleased,
    | and I can update the docs. It surprises me, though, to find out that
    | /sys/module is for things other than modules.

    Just depends on your definition of a module.

    AOE (or just about any device driver) can be considered logically
    as a module. You seem to be equating module with "loadable module"
    vs. a builtin module. The good news is that /sys/module works
    for loadable or builtin modules.
