The use of module parameters to set options is discouraged, especially
when there are better choices. All these parameter should be controllable by ethtool.
The reason is that users (and tools) shouldn't have to know the
special parameters that are specific to that hardware.

This version is okay as is for initial inclusion, but the parameters should
be removed later.
