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 "Discontiguous 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 the 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
"Discontiguous 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.

Allows the migration of the physical location of pages of processes
while the virtual addresses are not changed. This is useful for
example on NUMA systems to put pages nearer to the processors accessing
the page.

config DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR
        int "Low address space to protect from user allocation"
        default 4096
        help
This is the portion of low virtual memory which should be protected
from userspace allocation. Keeping a user from writing to low pages
can help reduce the impact of kernel NULL pointer bugs.

For most ia64, ppc64 and x86 users with lots of address space
a value of 65536 is reasonable and should cause no problems.
On arm and other archs it should not be higher than 32768.
Programs which use vm86 functionality or have some need to map
this low address space will need CAP_SYS_RAWIO or disable this
protection by setting the value to 0.

This value can be changed after boot using the
/proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr tunable.


config NOMMU_INITIAL_TRIM_EXCESS
int "Turn on mmap() excess space trimming before booting"
depends on !MMU
default 1
help
The NOMMU mmap() frequently needs to allocate large contiguous chunks
of memory on which to store mappings, but it can only ask the system
allocator for chunks in 2^N*PAGE_SIZE amounts - which is frequently
more than it requires. To deal with this, mmap() is able to trim off
the excess and return it to the allocator.

If trimming is enabled, the excess is trimmed off and returned to the
system allocator, which can cause extra fragmentation, particularly
if there are a lot of transient processes.

If trimming is disabled, the excess is kept, but not used, which for
long-term mappings means that the space is wasted.

Trimming can be dynamically controlled through a sysctl option
(/proc/sys/vm/nr_trim_pages) which specifies the minimum number of
excess pages there must be before trimming should occur, or zero if
no trimming is to occur.

This option specifies the initial value of this option. The default
of 1 says that all excess pages should be trimmed.
