I believe the reason for disabling it before release was to prevent
flooding Launchpad with kerneloops reports once the release was out.
However, just as apport stops sending crashes to Launchpad but continues
to send them to errors.ubuntu.com we could do the same with kerneloops.

I think enabling it would be a good idea as it would allow us to sort
out any issues with the submission process and also with kerneloops
