	  drivers, file systems, network protocols, etc.) can be in a state
	  of development where the functionality, stability, or the level of
	  testing is not yet high enough for general use. This is usually
	  known as the "alpha-test" phase among developers. If a feature is
	  currently in alpha-test, then the developers usually discourage
	  uninformed widespread use of this feature by the general public to
	  avoid "Why doesn't this work?" type mail messages. However, active
	  testing and use of these systems is welcomed. Just be aware that it
	  may not meet the normal level of reliability or it may fail to work
	  in some special cases. Detailed bug reports from people familiar
	  with the kernel internals are usually welcomed by the developers
	  (before submitting bug reports, please read the documents
	  <file:README>, <file:MAINTAINERS>, <file:REPORTING-BUGS>,
	  <file:Documentation/BUG-HUNTING>, and
	  <file:Documentation/oops-tracing.txt> in the kernel source).

	  This option will also make obsoleted drivers available. These are
	  drivers that have been replaced by something else, and/or are
	  scheduled to be removed in a future kernel release.

	  Unless you intend to help test and develop a feature or driver that
	  falls into this category, or you have a situation that requires
	  using these features, you should probably say N here, which will
	  cause the configurator to present you with fewer choices. If
	  you say Y here, you will be offered the choice of using features or
	  drivers that are currently considered to be in the alpha-test phase.

	  sys_sysctl uses binary paths that have been found challenging
	  to properly maintain and use.  The interface in /proc/sys
	  using paths with ascii names is now the primary path to this
	  information.

	  Almost nothing using the binary sysctl interface so if you are
	  trying to save some space it is probably safe to disable this,
	  making your kernel marginally smaller.

	  If unsure say Y here.

config KALLSYMS

	 default y
	 help
	   Say Y here to let the kernel print out symbolic crash information and

	   Normally kallsyms only contains the symbols of functions, for nicer
	   OOPS messages.  Some debuggers can use kallsyms for other

	   turn on KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS which should result in a stable build.
	   Always say N here unless you find a bug in kallsyms, which must be
	   reported.  KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS is only a temporary workaround while
	   you wait for kallsyms to be fixed.


config HOTPLUG
	bool "Support for hot-pluggable devices" if EMBEDDED
	default y
	help
	  This option is provided for the case where no hotplug or uevent
	  capabilities is wanted by the kernel.  You should only consider
	  disabling this option for embedded systems that do not use modules, a
	  dynamic /dev tree, or dynamic device discovery.  Just say Y.

config PRINTK
	default y
	bool "Enable support for printk" if EMBEDDED
	help
	  This option enables normal printk support. Removing it
	  eliminates most of the message strings from the kernel image
	  and makes the kernel more or less silent. As this makes it
	  very difficult to diagnose system problems, saying N here is
	  strongly discouraged.

config BUG
	bool "BUG() support" if EMBEDDED
	default y
	help
          Disabling this option eliminates support for BUG and WARN, reducing
          the size of your kernel image and potentially quietly ignoring
          numerous fatal conditions. You should only consider disabling this
          option for embedded systems with no facilities for reporting errors.

config BASE_FULL
	default y
	bool "Enable full-sized data structures for core" if EMBEDDED

	  but may reduce performance.

config FUTEX
	bool "Enable futex support" if EMBEDDED
	default y
	select RT_MUTEXES
	help
	  Disabling this option will cause the kernel to be built without

	  run glibc-based applications correctly.

config EPOLL
	bool "Enable eventpoll support" if EMBEDDED

	help
	  The shmem is an internal filesystem used to manage shared memory.
	  It is backed by swap and manages resource limits. It is also exported
	  to userspace as tmpfs if TMPFS is enabled. Disabling this
	  option replaces shmem and tmpfs with the much simpler ramfs code,
	  which may be appropriate on small systems without swap.

config AIO

	depends on HAVE_PERF_EVENTS
	select ANON_INODES
	help
	  Enable kernel support for various performance events provided
	  by software and hardware.

	  Software events are supported either built-in or via the
	  use of generic tracepoints.

	  Most modern CPUs support performance events via performance
	  counter registers. These registers count the number of certain
	  types of hw events: such as instructions executed, cachemisses
	  suffered, or branches mis-predicted - without slowing down the
	  kernel or applications. These registers can also trigger interrupts
	  when a threshold number of events have passed - and can thus be
	  used to profile the code that runs on that CPU.

	  The Linux Performance Event subsystem provides an abstraction of
	  these software and hardware event capabilities, available via a
	  system call and used by the "perf" utility in tools/perf/. It
	  provides per task and per CPU counters, and it provides event
	  capabilities on top of those.

	  Say Y if unsure.

config PERF_COUNTERS
	bool "Kernel performance counters (old config option)"
	depends on HAVE_PERF_EVENTS
	help
	  This config has been obsoleted by the PERF_EVENTS

config VM_EVENT_COUNTERS

config PCI_QUIRKS

	  This enables workarounds for various PCI chipset
          bugs/quirks. Disable this only if your target machine is
          unaffected by PCI quirks.

config SLUB_DEBUG
	default y
	bool "Enable SLUB debugging support" if EMBEDDED
	depends on SLUB && SYSFS
	help
	  SLUB has extensive debug support features. Disabling these can
	  result in significant savings in code size. This also disables
	  SLUB sysfs support. /sys/slab will not exist and there will be
	  no support for cache validation etc.

config COMPAT_BRK
	bool "Disable heap randomization"
	default y
	help
	  Randomizing heap placement makes heap exploits harder, but it
	  also breaks ancient binaries (including anything libc5 based).
	  This option changes the bootup default to heap randomization
	  disabled, and can be overridden at runtime by setting
	  /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space to 2.

	  On non-ancient distros (post-2000 ones) N is usually a safe choice.

config SLAB
	bool "SLAB"

	  The regular slab allocator that is established and known to work
	  well in all environments. It organizes cache hot objects in
	  per cpu and per node queues.

config SLUB
	bool "SLUB (Unqueued Allocator)"
	help
	   SLUB is a slab allocator that minimizes cache line usage
	   instead of managing queues of cached objects (SLAB approach).
	   Per cpu caching is realized using slabs of objects instead
	   of queues of objects. SLUB can use memory efficiently
	   and has enhanced diagnostics. SLUB is the default choice for
	   a slab allocator.

config SLOB
	depends on EMBEDDED

	   SLOB replaces the stock allocator with a drastically simpler
	   allocator. SLOB is generally more space efficient but

config MMAP_ALLOW_UNINITIALIZED
	bool "Allow mmapped anonymous memory to be uninitialized"

	default n
	help
	  Normally, and according to the Linux spec, anonymous memory obtained
	  from mmap() has it's contents cleared before it is passed to
	  userspace.  Enabling this config option allows you to request that
	  mmap() skip that if it is given an MAP_UNINITIALIZED flag, thus
	  providing a huge performance boost.  If this option is not enabled,
	  then the flag will be ignored.

	  This is taken advantage of by uClibc's malloc(), and also by
	  ELF-FDPIC binfmt's brk and stack allocator.

	  Because of the obvious security issues, this option should only be
	  enabled on embedded devices where you control what is run in
	  userspace.  Since that isn't generally a problem on no-MMU systems,
	  it is normally safe to say Y here.

	  See Documentation/nommu-mmap.txt for more information.

menuconfig MODULES
	bool "Enable loadable module support"
	help
	  Kernel modules are small pieces of compiled code which can
	  be inserted in the running kernel, rather than being
	  permanently built into the kernel.  You use the "modprobe"
	  tool to add (and sometimes remove) them.  If you say Y here,
	  many parts of the kernel can be built as modules (by
	  answering M instead of Y where indicated): this is most
	  useful for infrequently used options which are not required
	  for booting.  For more information, see the man pages for
	  modprobe, lsmod, modinfo, insmod and rmmod.

	  If you say Y here, you will need to run "make
	  modules_install" to put the modules under /lib/modules/
	  where modprobe can find them (you may need to be root to do
	  this).

	  If unsure, say Y.

config MODULE_FORCE_LOAD
	bool "Forced module loading"
	default n
	help
	  Allow loading of modules without version information (ie. modprobe

	  is usually a really bad idea.

config MODULE_UNLOAD
	bool "Module unloading"
	help
	  Without this option you will not be able to unload any
	  modules (note that some modules may not be unloadable
	  anyway), which makes your kernel smaller, faster
	  and simpler.  If unsure, say Y.

config MODULE_FORCE_UNLOAD
	bool "Forced module unloading"
	depends on MODULE_UNLOAD && EXPERIMENTAL
	help
	  This option allows you to force a module to unload, even if the
	  kernel believes it is unsafe: the kernel will remove the module
	  without waiting for anyone to stop using it (using the -f option to
	  rmmod).  This is mainly for kernel developers and desperate users.
	  If unsure, say N.

config MODVERSIONS
	bool "Module versioning support"
	help
	  Usually, you have to use modules compiled with your kernel.
	  Saying Y here makes it sometimes possible to use modules
	  compiled for different kernels, by adding enough information
	  to the modules to (hopefully) spot any changes which would
	  make them incompatible with the kernel you are running.  If
	  unsure, say N.

config MODULE_SRCVERSION_ALL
	bool "Source checksum for all modules"
	help
	  Modules which contain a MODULE_VERSION get an extra "srcversion"
	  field inserted into their modinfo section, which contains a
    	  sum of the source files which made it.  This helps maintainers
	  see exactly which source was used to build a module (since
	  others sometimes change the module source without updating
	  the version).  With this option, such a "srcversion" field
	  will be created for all modules.  If unsure, say N.
