Thanks, yes. The logs don't give much to go on, so I can only iterate
on this as fast as I can drum up feedback.

Right, and agree. I was just grasping at straws because I know of
users that want to take advantage of this and was lamenting the
upcoming apology tour saying, "sorry, maybe v5.2". I had always
expected that platforms outside of x86-servers would need to do their
own validation / evaluation before recommending this, and the
regression concern is why it defaulted to disabled... but boot
regressions are boot regressions.
