Please indent the kconfig body with a single tab character.

hm, now what's happening with the third arg to module_param()?

Please pass this patch (and all others) through scripts/checkpatch.pl
and review the resulting output.

What does "pet" stand for?

Should this be del_timer_sync()? The timer callback can still be
executing after del_timer() returns.

Can this happen?
