Subject[RFC v3 2/2] kernel/sysctl: support handling command line aliases
Date
We can now handle sysctl parameters on kernel command line, but historically
some parameters introduced their own command line equivalent, which we don't
want to remove for compatibility reasons. We can however convert them to the
generic infrastructure with a table translating the legacy command line
parameters to their sysctl names, and removing the one-off param handlers.

This patch adds the support and makes the first conversion to demonstrate it,
on the (deprecated) numa_zonelist_order parameter.

Changes in v3:
- constify some things according to Kees
- expand the comment of sysctl_aliases to note on different timings
