It seems this should rather be a run time setting. Otherwise it's
impossible to fuzz existing kernel binaries without rebuilding them.

Yes syzkaller requires rebuilding anyways for the new compiler options,
but there are other options (e.g. PT guided fuzzing) that do not.

Maybe the run time setting can be the same as locked down kernels.
It seems to me locked down kernels should avoid all these operations too.
