Nope. I don't think we can do this :(

For example, we need to create ext4_pspace_cachep kmem cache 
for the pre-allocation to work. We can't ifdef it out.

Mingming/Amit, can you take a look at this ? It looks like
we NEED procfs support to make mballoc work. If so, we need
to add it to the dependency.


Thanks,
Badari
