It is not necessarily something that should be enabled by default,
imo. The distro kernels will probably enabled it, which is good enough

It was I who missed something: I have been reshuffling some bits, and
this fell through the cracks. I didn't spot it since I apparently did
not try to rebuild it cleanly.
I would like to get rid of the linux_banner reference in the stub
completely, and I posted a patch here
In the mean time, could you try with this folded in?
