    Hi Michal,

    Idea is solid, implementation has a few quirks. As the name
    obsolete_checksetup() implies, this was only supposed to be a crutch for
    old __setup() calls. Modern code should be using module_param() or
    core_param().

    Did you have a specific example? Perhaps we should work on converting
    them all, which would have beneficial side-effects as we poke into old
    code...

    Thanks!
    Rusty.
