help
This option allows you to change some of the ways that
Linux manages its memory internally. Most users will
only have one option here: FLATMEM. This is normal
and a correct option.

Some users of more advanced features like NUMA and
memory hotplug may have different options here.
DISCONTIGMEM is an more mature, better tested system,
but is incompatible with memory hotplug and may suffer
decreased performance over SPARSEMEM. If unsure between
"Sparse Memory" and "Discontiguous Memory", choose
"Discontiguous Memory".

If unsure, choose this option (Flat Memory) over any other.

config DISCONTIGMEM_MANUAL
bool "Discontigious Memory"
depends on ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE
help
This option provides enhanced support for discontiguous
memory systems, over FLATMEM. These systems have holes
in their physical address spaces, and this option provides
more efficient handling of these holes. However, the vast
majority of hardware has quite flat address spaces, and
can have degraded performance from extra overhead that
this option imposes.

Many NUMA configurations will have this as the only option.

If unsure, choose "Flat Memory" over this option.

config SPARSEMEM_MANUAL
bool "Sparse Memory"
depends on ARCH_SPARSEMEM_ENABLE
help
This will be the only option for some systems, including
memory hotplug systems. This is normal.

For many other systems, this will be an alternative to
"Discontigious Memory". This option provides some potential
performance benefits, along with decreased code complexity,
but it is newer, and more experimental.

If unsure, choose "Discontiguous Memory" or "Flat Memory"
over this option.
