    But in the drivers/ata case it's a module parameter, not a __setup
    kernel parameter.

    And I don't think it makes sense to manually add module parameters to
    kernel-parameters.txt

    If a documentation of all module parameters is considered useful,
    someone should write a script to automatically generate such a list.
