Can you rebase this patch, I think it will have conflicts or fuzz here.

This feels odd, but ok, I trust you :)

Care to update this patch with the new SPDX format for licenses?

You don't have any pr_* calls, so this isn't needed :)

What is this comment at the end of the file for?

Why return an error? Shouldn't this just "succeed" if the option is not
built in? What will you do with it if it fails because of this?
