passing options to build-in-modules


I have a monolithic kernel (for security purposes) with my ethernet-driver build in.

I want to have wake-on-lan enabled. I know how to do it: pass "option enable_wol=1" to the module.
However, since the driver is build-in, I can't pass anything to a MODULE.

Any idea how to pass options to BUILD-IN drivers?

Modules are there to pass options. If you dont have modules you have to edit the source code of the kernel for your device for any extras you want.

what about, for example, the 'ide=....' lines? (I can't find a site right now)
