Thanks, yes, I saw that. I didn't have the list of command line
arguments &c to hand, so I tried
insmod 3c509.o irq=15
and insmod dumped core. At that point I gave up trying that approach,
thinking that this symbol=value was some kind of internal debugging
feature - it sounded like it from the manpage.

Quite. And insmod should not dump core if you get it wrong ...
