I did that some hours ago, and closed the pr, too.  

But I think Martin's point was _if we could test_ if the COMPAT_
options are enabled in the current kernel, so that we can terminate
installation if they aren't (and don't get a weird error executing a
binary that's not supported by the kernel).

So, is this possible?
