Subjectwhat means "module_param(channel_mask, channel_mask, 0644)"?

researching my next newbie column about module parameters and i ran
across the following:

drivers/input/misc/ati_remote2.c:module_param(channel_mask, channel_mask, 0644);
drivers/input/misc/ati_remote2.c:module_param(mode_mask, mode_mask, 0644);

i have no idea what it means to have the second (type) field of
module_param() simply repeat the name of the parameter. is this some
strange magic? those two names don't *appear* to be typedef'ed
anywhere i can see.
