I much prefer a compile-time thing.

Performance is, to me, paramount for "checker". I don't want to slow it
down, I'm hoping that some day we can just enable C=1 by default in the
kernel build (this is a _long_ time off, though, don't you all start
worrying now).

I don't see anything wrong with a compile/install time thing, that is,
after all, how gcc too works.
