Hmm. One additional note: It does not make much sense to add a parameter
to a module which is loaded via bmodfs because the parameter cannot be
evaluated by bmodfs or any other application. An L4 application which want
to access the module does it by using the generic_fprov interface and gets
a dataspace if open was successful. There is simply no room for an argument.

So what do you want to achive? If you want to pass the password to
hddencrypter you should start hddencrypter using the loader, e.g.

  (nd)/loader --fprov=BMODFS "hddencrypter --with-password-dialog"
