Make a new file:
options $module_name $variable=$value

so in your case something like:
options sb2 serialize_io=1

Then run update-modules.  rmmod the module, and reload, and it should be
loaded with the new options.  /sbin/modinfo $module gives the full list
of options a module supports (hopefully).

Take care,
