The entire point of this exercise is not to make it easy to add this
feature. Linus was absolutely against a config option, and I am too.

The point of this exercise is to be able to debug the *same* kernel that
someone is having issues with. And this is to facilitate that debugging.
Whereas the example you show, the command line modifies how the kernel
works. This command line only modifies what the kernel displays. Big
difference.
