Not really. We want pretty much everyone to enable and use CEC. That way
people don't bother use about the occasional neutron strike flipping a bit.

So we need to make sure there are no excuses for disabling it. People
may come up with other cases where they say they would need to disable
(perhaps genuine, perhaps bogus) ... if our only answers are reboot, or
recompile and reboot ... then they'll disable forever.

If they do that, why do we even have it in the kernel?
