No, I'm not going to apply this. Allowing users to randomly write to
devices could potentially lead to physical damage to the system and so
isn't something we want to for example see distros enabling by mistake,
and it's also a back door that people will happily use for working
around the kernel in ill conceived ways.

People who reasonably need this are edting their kernel anyway so
tweaking the in code define isn't onerous.
