That's really interesting, because with it compiled in, I can't boot on
my EFI based thinkpad laptop without telling EFI to launch the CSM, and
with it compiled out, I can boot fine without the CSM. I'll have to
look further into the options I have set in my kernel build, I may have
changed something else without remembering between booting with and
without the CSM enabled.
