That comes out as a side effect of kernel build 2.5, every object gets
-DKBUILD_OBJECT to define the name it is known by. From

-DKBUILD_OBJECT=module, the name of the module the object is
linked into, without the trailing '.o' and without any paths.
If the object is a free standing module or is linked into
vmlinux then the "module" name is the object itself.
Automatically generated.

Post kbuild 2.5 I will be writing a generic parameter/command line
interface so you can insmod foo bar=99 or boot with You
will even be able to boot with when foo is a module, insmod
will use the command line as a default set of values.
