SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 3/3] param: make /sys/module/*/paramaters optional
Thank you all for your feedback.

FYI, this patch was meant to be an answer to a negative feedback I
received when I proposed changing a few module_param(... perm=S_IRUGO)
in forcedeth driver. But I agree the "price to pay" is very low.

Should I drop this patch?
