I certainly acknowledge the problem, but I'm a little hesitant to add
a static buffer of 256-4096 bytes (2048 on x86, arm64, powerpc, sparc)
for a relatively low-usage situation. The memory usage doesn't seem
in proportion to the value-add.

Ugh, and we allocate another similar buffer for
resource_alignment_param[], which I would guess is also rarely used.

Since disable_acs_redir_param[] and resource_alignment_param[] are
both read-only and big enough to hold the entire command line, we
should be able to share a single buffer between them if we made the
parsers a little smarter. In fact, I bet there's already a static
copy lying around somewhere for /proc/cmdline.
