     No. NORM_NO is suppose to mean that the norm computations
are turned OFF. In the gmres algorithms the norm calculation cannot
be turned off, therefore setting this flag should generate an
error as it currently does.


 You could perhaps an additional option 
-ksp_convergence_test <skip,default>
if you like that allows turning it off from the command line.
