    Actually I'm concerned about total kernel command line length,
    so using option names that are "long" when short will do is not good IMO.

    I.e., I can easily overflow a 255-byte command line length buffer,
    so Shorter is Better.

    However, "when short will do" does not mean making them unreadable or
    like they mean something else, like "nopkt".
