I could be wrong but I believe that is more of a loader tuneable than a
sysctl that should be modified at run-time. Rebooting with this set to 0
will disable showing the /dev/gptid directory.

This makes me wonder if those sysctl's should be marked read-only at
run-time. Though you could even rm -rf /dev/gptid ;)
