Btw, regardless of what we end up doing wrt hiding this switch under
RAS_CEC_DEBUG or exposing it, that ce_arr.disabled flag is not
needed anymore and you can remove it along with the flags union in
ce_array with the next version of this. Because one of the cec_enabled
or ce_arr.disabled is now redundant and I think you want to have
cec_enabled. :)

Thx.
