Please do not use module parameters for settings that effect
the basic operation of the driver.

Instead use facilities that are generic and provide the same
user interface for all networking drivers, such as ethtool.

Otherwise users would need to learn a different way to configure the
same thing on different devices, which is not acceptable.
