Ugh, that could be better. 

One thing I've been considering is passing all kernel parameters to
modules in the modprobe line always. I'm not sure how all modules would
react to this, hopefully they'd just ignore unknown parameters. We may
try that eventually. Of course it wouldn't help with passing the
parameter on the installed system.
