There are already two such PCI parameters with this pattern and they are
not that awkward. pci_dev may be specified with either vendor/device IDS
or with a path of BDFs (which protects against renumbering).

This flag is only useful in P2PDMA traffic, and if the user attempts
such a transfer, it prints a warning (see the next patch) with the exact
parameter that needs to be added to the command line.

This has worked well for disable_acs_redir and was used for
resource_alignment before that for quite some time. So save a better
suggestion I think this is more than acceptable.
