    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.
