Users must be given an option to discard any constraints set by
bootloaders. For example, consider that a constraint is set for the LCD
controller's supply and the LCD driver isn't loaded by the kernel. If
the user doesn't need to use the LCD device, then he shouldn't be forced
to honour the constraint.

We can also think about finer control of such constraints with help of
some sysfs files, but a kernel parameter is fine to begin with.
