If possible, I'd like to avoid adding a config option for this. It's
pretty opaque to the user, and should really be specified by the system
integrator, not the end user.

That is, unless I'm missing something about why one would be chosen over
the other. Shouldn't we always use kexec_file_load if the kernel (and
kexec) has support for it?
