It did. Almost like you planned it.

kernel-param not needed - was part of old way.
whitespace cleaned out too.

I thought about the possible abuse, but then saw existing uses:

linux-2.6]$ grep parse_args init/main.c
parse_args("early options", cmdline, NULL, 0, do_early_param);
parse_args("Booting kernel", static_command_line, __start___param,

"Booting kernel" isnt quite a name either.

wrt using a struct module arg, Id prefer not.
what I need is the name, so that the ddebug-queries being passed
can leave out the module name and thus be shorter and less redundant

forex:
foo.dyndbg=" func bar +p ; func buz +p ; func bang +p "

would otherwize need "module foo" in each of the 4 rules, which would
be tedious.
Since its been given already by user, and already available in load_module()'s
existing call to parse_args(), it seems straightforward to alter the
cb sig, and pass it down.

OK yes. I'll change rc to -ENOENT.
