If you use the floppy driver as a module, use the following syntax:
-modprobe floppy <options>
+modprobe floppy floppy="<options>"
- modprobe floppy omnibook messages
+ modprobe floppy floppy="omnibook messages"
If you need certain options enabled every time you load the floppy driver,
you can put:
- options floppy omnibook messages
+ options floppy floppy="omnibook messages"
in a configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d/.
