From: Peter P Waskiewicz Jr <peter.p.waskiewicz.jr@intel.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1065475

The X520 family of network devices, with the 82599 chip, support a
small number of Intel-verified SFP+ modules on their NICs.  To maintain
stability and quality, the current devices restrict untested 3rd party
SFP+ modules.

This patch introduces a module parameter for ixgbe to allow these untested
modules at the user's peril.  It also includes a warning to the syslog
alerting users that the modules aren't supported, and results may
vary.

Ack on the patch, just noted some minor things that doesn't affect
correctness anyway...

This could be assigned directly, without the if (harmless).

String could have been broken down in more than one line...
