This is based on past experience. We've had a lot of cases were people
did not enable the necessary CPU errata workaround, which then usually
lead to very hard to debug system failures. It is on our list of things
to look out for now, but I would feel much better if there is just no
chance for a user to misconfigure the kernel in this way.
