When would you want to disable it? at kernel boot time (as a boot option)
or sometime later?

Makes some sense to me and it's not difficult to implement.

But would you only want to disable Call Trace: on panics or any time that a
call trace might be printed? and would disabling call trace also disable
the raw stack dump and Code: output, or literally just the call trace?
