Not earlier. Commit 77a4494388ab debuted in next-20141203:
$ git tag --contains 77a4494388ab

I missed that commit. But then again it never occurred to me that a
Kconfig symbol would be added and removed in one series. And, obviously,
grepping for INIT_FALLBACK didn't show anything in linux-next before
today (the oldest tree I checked was next-20141201, after which I lost
interest in going back any further).

I won't be bothering (Andrew and) you again about this. Unless sorting
this out takes rather long, that is.
