CONFIG_INIT_FALLBACK: Fall back to defaults if init= parameter is bad

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_INIT_FALLBACK:

Help text

If enabled, the kernel will try the default init binaries if an explicit request from the init= parameter fails.

This can have unexpected effects. For example, booting with init=/sbin/kiosk_app will run /sbin/init or even /bin/sh if /sbin/kiosk_app cannot be executed.

The default value of Y is consistent with historical behavior. Selecting N is likely to be more appropriate for most uses, especially on kiosks and on kernels that are intended to be run under the control of a script.
