The initial proposal was to allow 'force' feature on architectures
without HAVE_RELIABLE_STACKTRACE support and use pr_notice() to warn
user about the non-availability of consistency model. It was argued
against, as it will encourage people to use it as an alternative instead
of adding HAVE_RELIABLE_STACKTRACE support to the kernel.
