Yeah, true. This gets back to my wanting to have this be more dynamic in
the pstore core. But, yes, for now, you're right.

You can still do this for initialization:

static long pmsg_size = IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_PSTORE_PMSG)
? CONFIG_PSTORE_BLKOOPS_PMSG_SIZE
: -1;

But that'll require logic changes to verify_size(). We can revisit this
after v3.

I'd still rather identical strings not be scattered around pstore. :) Go
ahead and make get_reason_str() non-static and rename it
pstore_get_reason_str(), EXPORT_SYMBOL(), add to pstore.h etc.
