Yeah, this is definitely doable. Can we get the YaST team on board with
adding that notification and support?

Wouldn't it be enough to have the kernel panic with a descriptive
message when the allow_unsupported is needed for the rootfs but not set?

Which might not be the best approach for remotely operated systems.

Seems less work :-)

And I personally don't like auto-enabling of "dangerous" features
without my interaction. But that's just my opinion.

Then we need a notification mechanism which is independent from YaST and
