I thought you were going to drop this patch, or at least I had suggested so
but did not hear a reply from you: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/10/3/464

Thanks for adding the comments though.

Steve, what do you think about this patch? I am worried the extra flag may go
obsolete at some point if the console latencies are fixed and we have yet
another knob.

thanks,

- Joel
