Ok that's fine too (to have finer grained options), just those should
be on/off too, not toggle.

Even with documentation support semantics changes over releases are not nice.
So "toggle" is bad, always have it absolute values.

So if an user decides they want full cgroup support and stick in a option
for .25 into their boot loader config they should always get full cgroup support in
all future kernels. Similiar if someone decides they don't need it.
