That is really great. Thanks for your feedback.

No. I just tested it with an little bit older build and it works without
a problem. Maybe you didn't have a network connection?

No. This document specifies how you can specify module parameters. One
way is to specify the parameters after providing the name  on the
modprobe command like:

modprobe modulename moduleparameter=value

The other solution is to specify modulename.moduleparameter=value at the
boot commandline.
