I've seen that the modules have been successfully built, so I
did assume that _everything_ still works. But modules seem to
be quite different from what is required to get things working
directly inside the kernel, such as the "Giant" locking mechanism
which doesn't seem to be supported anymore (according to the
compiler error messages).

The only thing I'm not sure is:

How am I supposed to change former kernel options such as


in order to define how the card works, as I need PAL support
and not NTSC. Is there a mechanism to change this for the
module? Or per loader tunable, or a sysctl?

Or maybe I don't even need that setting, as it is the default?
Just like A4 is the default paper size? :-)
