Well, quite frankly, I'm fine with both. It all boils down to passing a
specific string on the kernel command line.

Well, we are all looking to save worlds power here and my suggestion
would definitely use less power as it has less instructions to execute.
Just for fun!!.

I would like to leave it the way it is now. If for what ever reason we need
another switch passed to the driver we have a place for it without adding
another single purpose command line option

The updated with __initdata and the spelling fixes will follow shortly
