Subject[PATCH] Documentation: kernel-parameters: clarify "module." parameters
From: Randy Dunlap <>

The command-line parameters "dyndbg" and "async_probe" are not
parameters for kernel/module.c but instead they are for the
module that is being loaded. Try to make that distinction in the
help text.

OTOH, "module.sig_enforce" is handled as a parameter of kernel/module.c
so "module." is correct for it.
