I suggested that we add the module parameters to the error-state to
aide, though even that is not fool proof as they could change between
the driver doing an undefined op and it fouling up the GPU. Any sign of
conflicting information inside the error-state is meant to be thought
provoking. ;-)

The idea is to dump as much information as we can about the errors and
leave the complex art of interpretation up to userspace.
