I understand that, the fact that you now want this to be a configurable
value at build time, yet provide exactly NO information to anyone as to
what to set the values to, what the values mean, or anything else about
these values this is why I am rejecting this patch.

If you are already properly handling os-release, then there is no need
for these values to mean anything for a Linux guest, as it would be
totally redundant, and probably wrong (hint, the same kernel binary can
be running on different os userspace layers.)
