Can you explain Daniel's case then? I still don't understand what he
actually wants.

As I keep repeating, the module parameter *does* apply to the pci
driver front-end since it determines whether the driver will disallow
writes to the mtd device without it. The only difference is that the pci
driver will attempt to set the hardware bit without checking the
module parameter first, while the platform driver does not. If the
module parameter is not set however, the state of the hardware
bit is never checked again.
