From the original description:

This patch adds a boot parameter to allow a kernel to be booted
with the option to skip the SRAT check. There are BIOSes in
production that have these failures, so this will allow people
in the field to work around these BIOS issues.

Agreed that command-line option is a good thing to have in general and
that it is not necessary to have DMI quirks for preproduction BIOSes.
