Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] param: optional /sys/module/*/parameters
Date
Hi,

Thank you Rusty for your review.

Here is the v2. I hope it is easier to understand. It also adds
doc for the new Kconfig knob.

Description:

These patches turn /sys/module/*/parameters into an optional feature
that can be enabled/disabled at compilation time. The goal is to
encourage module developers to expose more of their parameters with
fewer hesitations (eg. memory concerns, etc.), as the burden on
small systems can now be avoided by disabling
/sys/module/*/paramaters/ altogether at compile-time. On larger
systems, having more module parameters exposed would help
debugging/auditing of live systems.

Regards,
