Again, I'm asking to have it turned into a config option. Even default to
off. I understand that /dev/kmem shouldn't be in a production machine.
There's no reason for it. But it is nice to have when debugging the
kernel. I'll make the changes if need be, to make this into a config
option (placed in the kernel debug section). I'll even maintain it to
keep it working. But I don't want yet another thing I need to write
myself for debugging the kernel.

Thanks,
