Subject[PATCH v1 4/6] moduleparam.h: add module_param_config_*() helpers
Date
From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <mcgrof@suse.com>

This adds a couple of bool module_param_config_*() helpers
which are designed to let us easily associate a booloean
module parameter with an associated kernel configuration
option, and to help us remove #ifdef'ery eyesores.
