It depends on what you want to control.

Again, it depends on what you are wanting to handle here. module
parameters and setup variables are all "global" in that they affect all
devices of the same type. sysfs can be "per device" which is almost
always what you want to have happen.

But don't use any of those for things that should be "automatic" in that
the driver should figure out what needs to be done here and not need any
external configuration. That's the best way of all to handle this.

thanks,
