Hans just asked Mauro to pull it.  See:

The latest of Hans' cx18 repo does have the parameter in question.  From
my hg cloned copy:

$ grep -n adapter_nr cx18/linux/drivers/media/video/cx18/*
cx18/linux/drivers/media/video/cx18/cx18-dvb.c:144:                     THIS_MODULE, &cx->dev->dev, adapter_nr);

Beyond "/sbin/modinfo cx18" I can't test if it works.  But if you need
it, it's there.
