I agree that the current check is incorrect and should be removed. It's been possible for a long time to have dotted parameters for built- in code, whether or not that code could ever be built as a module. > So, does it look too ugly? It is ugly that we will still end up writing module parameters for non- existent modules. But I'm guessing that for some other boot loaders we don't set the kernel parameters at all, so setting (some) parameters there is better than nothing, right?
