This is a bad bug to live with. OTOH, I do not have an immediate solution
in my mind on how to make sure (a) these options when reintroduced are made
no-ops, especially they will be disallowed to tune (with out dirty option
check hacks at volume set staging code) . If we're to tag RC1 tomorrow, I
wouldn't be able to take a risk to commit this change.

Can we actually have a note in our upgrade guide to document that if you're
upgrading to 4.1 or higher version make sure to disable these options
before the upgrade to mitigate this?
