Yes, almost precisely what I'd like. With a little big of reorganisation,
the scanner in main.c could be made available to all modules, we'd
just pass it the argument string.

Then we should teach insmod that the syntax:

insmod floppy=0,4,cmos

means:

insmod floppy.o argv="0,4,cmos"

This breaks none of the current insmod behaviour while providing identical
parameter handling for built-in and loadable modules.
