Add pointer to current and next argument to make parameter processing
more robust. This can make parameter processing easier and less error
prone in cases where the parameters need to be enforced/ignored based
on firmware/system state.

Changes in v9:
* Fixed messages like below observed while loading modules with no parameters.
    - iptable_filter: unknown parameter '' ignored
    - ip_tables: unknown parameter '' ignored

The [PATCH v8 5/6] you refreshed here moves the while(*next) to the end
of the cycle for a reason. Checking *args at the start is mostly
equivalent checking *next at the end. Checking *next at the start on
the other hand skips the last argument.

The "mostly" part is that there is a bug here because *args is not
checked at the start of the cycle making it possible to crash if it is
0. To fix that the if(*args) above should be extended to wrap the cycle.

Thanks

Michal
