Wow, when init/main.c:obsolete_checksetup() matches the `board' part,
it ignores the next character (`i'), assuming this is `=', and passes
the remainder (`d=1').

> handler registered for param "board" for "boardid" also. Is this ok ?

I don't think this is OK.

Probably nobody noticed as this part of the code takes care of the
`obsolete-style' parameters. `module_param' is the new way.

With kind regards,
