You mean "no scenario requires disabling 10-bit tags and then
re-enabling them"?  That may be true, but I'm still hesitant to
provide a switch than can only be reversed by rebooting.

This is similar to the issue Leon raised that it's not practical to
reboot machines.  Maybe we accept a one-way switch if the sole purpose
is to work around a hardware defect.  Or maybe a kernel parameter that
disables 10-bit tags completely is the defect mitigation.  I think we
probably need such a parameter in case a defect prevents us from
booting far enough to use the sysfs switch.
