Dunno about OP but my use case is very simple: I don't want to preempt
period. I just want all running ones to finish, then I want to install
the new kernel/libc/whatever and reboot.

I'm sure the above is great for whoever needs it, but to me it looks
like way too many knobs for something that should be dead simple:
temporarily set START to false without having to hand-edit the config
file. Twice.
