Fixed ... I think.
Thank you,

Subject: [PATCH] test_power: fix a bug in setting module parameter values

When the kernel loads a module, module params are processed
prior to calling module_init. As a result, setting module param
value should not have side effects, at least as long as the
module has not been initialized.
