Along those lines, Bob just came by my office and gave me a decisive
argument that I think trumps my ABI concerns, and one I'd be willing
to argue for 4.2 inclusion. Some BIOS implementers may do the work to
get the polarity correct others may just read the flag name and get it
wrong. Once that happens the field loses all meaning regardless of
whether Linux interprets it correctly.
