    Subjectaf_unix.c, KBUILD_MODNAME and unix
    Hello All,

    af_unix.c is currenty built with KBUILD_MODNAME=unix. This seems to
    work rather well today, but if someone actually tries to use
    KBUILD_MODNAME then they will end up with a preprocessor surprise:
    KBUILD_MODNAME -> unix -> 1, because "unix" is defined to 1.

    With other words, if someone adds module_param(foo,...) code to
    af_unix.c and compiles the code as built in then they will have to use
    "" to set the variable instead of "" as expected.

    Solution? #undef unix?

    I came across this when trying to autogenerate parameter documentation...
