Kernel Parameters

The following is a consolidated list of the kernel parameters as implemented
(mostly) by the __setup() macro and sorted into English Dictionary order
(defined as ignoring all punctuation and sorting digits before letters in a
case insensitive manner), and with descriptions where known.

Module parameters for loadable modules are specified only as the
parameter name with optional ‘=’ and value as appropriate, such as:

    modprobe usbcore blinkenlights=1

Module parameters for modules that are built into the kernel image
are specified on the kernel command line with the module name plus
‘.’ plus parameter name, with ‘=’ and value if appropriate, such as:


Hyphens (dashes) and underscores are equivalent in parameter names, so
    log_buf_len=1M print-fatal-signals=1
can also be entered as
    log-buf-len=1M print_fatal_signals=1
