Wait a minute. I did raise the possibility of a config option,
but only in the context of code whose only purpose was to help
debug the BIOS. And I suggested that code like that might not
belong in the mainline at all.

But this code is not like that, since you apparently need it for
kexec in general. I don't think you should add an additional
config option just for this code. A new option would just add
complexity for no benefit.
