Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487395
enable runtime scanning of boot args during a module load
Last modified: 2010-10-23 03:53:59 EDT
Upstream allows one to specify boot line arguments to be passed into modules.
nohpet nopmtimer powernow_k8.tscsync=1
would pass the tscsync=1 argument into the powernow_k8 module, while nohpet and nopmtimer would be used by the kernel.
This would be very useful for RHEL5 and according to jcm ;), is a trivial patch.
Release note added. If any revisions are required, please set the
"requires_release_notes" flag to "?" and edit the "Release Notes" field accordingly.
All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
This updated module-init-tools package provides an enhancement that enables module parameters to be read automatically from the kernel command line in the same fashion that built-in kernel modules are handled.(BZ#487395)
