module_param: stop double-calling parameters.
Rusty Russell [Fri, 8 Jun 2012 05:28:13 +0000 (14:28 +0930)]
commit ae82fdb1406ad41d68f07027fe31f2d35ba22a90 upstream.

Commit 026cee0086fe1df4cf74691cf273062cc769617d "params:
<level>_initcall-like kernel parameters" set old-style module
parameters to level 0.  And we call those level 0 calls where we used
to, early in start_kernel().

We also loop through the initcall levels and call the levelled
module_params before the corresponding initcall.  Unfortunately level
0 is early_init(), so we call the standard module_param calls twice.

(Turns out most things don't care, but at least ubi.mtd does).

Change the level to -1 for standard module_param calls.
