Subject[PATCH V38 19/29] Lock down module params that specify hardware parameters (eg. ioport)
From
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Provided an annotation for module parameters that specify hardware
parameters (such as io ports, iomem addresses, irqs, dma channels, fixed
dma buffers and other types).
