Permit Display/edit of platform settings


Linux Kernel Configuration
└─>Platform options
└─>Permit Display/edit of platform settings
In linux kernel since version 2.6.30 (release Date: 2009-06-09)  
Allows the editing of auto-generated platform settings from
the file. Obviously this does not change the
underlying hardware, so be very careful if you go editing
these settings.

Also, if you enable this, and edit various
settings, YOUR CHANGES WILL BE LOST if you then disable it
again. You have been warned!

If unsure, say no.
