This patch, like all of your other patches, is not acceptable.

First of all, such module parameters are strongly discouraged.

Instead, such things should be controlled by portable, generic, run
time configurations mechanisms such as ethtool.

Furthermore, you are not explaining sufficiently why this configuration
option is really needed and in exactly what circumstances they would
be used.

I want to _STRONGLY_ impress upon you how much time and effort is
seemingly being wasted on your poorly thought out and formatted

If this continues do not be surprised if you find it hard for people
willing to look at your submissions at all.  You need to start making
clean proper submissions soon.
