iwlwifi: merge module parameters into single place
Module parameters used to be defined in both iwl-5000.c and iwl-4965.c, after the code re-structure, merge into iwl-agn.c for easy to read and maintenance. Number of module parameters are deprecated after this merge. These are also scheduled for removal by 2.6.40. The current supported parameters are: parm: debug50:50XX debug output mask (deprecated) (uint) parm: debug:debug output mask (uint) parm: swcrypto50:using crypto in software (default 0 [hardware]) (deprecated) (bool) parm: swcrypto:using crypto in software (default 0 [hardware]) (int) parm: queues_num50:number of hw queues in 50xx series (deprecated) (int) parm: queues_num:number of hw queues. (int) parm: 11n_disable50:disable 50XX 11n functionality (deprecated) (int) parm: 11n_disable:disable 11n functionality (int) parm: amsdu_size_8K50:enable 8K amsdu size in 50XX series (deprecated) (int) parm: amsdu_size_8K:enable 8K amsdu size (int) parm: fw_restart50:restart firmware in case of error (deprecated) (int) parm: fw_restart:restart firmware in case of error (int) parm: disable_hw_scan:disable hardware scanning (default 0) (int) Remove "antenna" module parameter, it is not being used in "agn" driver.

+What: iwlwifi 50XX module parameters
+When: 2.6.40
+Why: The "..50" modules parameters were used to configure 5000 series and
+ up devices; different set of module parameters also available for 4965
+ with same functionalities. Consolidate both set into single place
+ in drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwl-agn.c
