module paramters, independent of exporting into sysfs [and they're not
free'd on init!] need 56 bytes per module, and 20 + sizeof(name of
parameter) bytes per module parameter.

If they're exported to sysfs, the first one per module costs 66, all other
ones 10 bytes. So exporting to sysfs is cheap.
