Well, if it is going to take that long to fix 2.2 ... modutils 2.3.23
will make this a semi-warning. modules with invalid MODULE_PARM for
options that are not used will load, but the module will not support
persistent data. If somebody actually tries to use one of the invalid
options then insmod will fail, it already does this.
