The kernel command line (EC_VER=blabla) is passed by bootloader(PMON)
automatically, so, I think it's better to use it.

Using an extra module param is good, but may make the users confused and
will also add extra jobs to the distribution developers ;) in the
future, the information of the EC and the other information of the
devices will be passed to kernel from BIOS via something like
FDT(Flattened Device Tree, used on PowerPC machines) as Ralf introduced,
so, the above method is a temp solution.
