Re: Ralink rt2500, can't load module

The below patch is NOT the correct solution. The solutions is to fix up
the calls.

The new format for module_param is module_param(NAME, TYPE, PERMISSION);

So, the NAME is obvious, it stays the same. The TYPE is one of (byte,
short, ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, charp, bool or invbool).

I just now found this http://lwn.net/Articles/22197/ . It answers all
the questions of how to do the fix. I wish I would have found this a
month ago when I was making the driver work. It would have answered my
question in minutes instead of the two hours it took me to track down.
