Hi Paul,

Thanks for the comment; indeed the section "MODULE PARAMETERS" in
torture.txt duplicates the corresponding sections in
kernel-parameters.txt. I can resubmit a patch that (1) removes the
section "MODULE PARAMETERS" in torture.txt, and (2) add a single
sentence saying "Module parameters are detailed in
Documentation/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.txt". Does that sound
good?

Thanks,
--Junchang
