Subject: [PATCH V32 18/27] Lock down module params that specify hardware
 parameters (eg. ioport)

From: David Howells <dhowells@...hat.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).
