Subject: sparsemem: Make SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP selectable


From: Geoff Levand <geoffrey.levand@...sony.com>

SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP needs to be a selectable config option to
support building the kernel both with and without sparsemem
vmemmap support.  This selection is desirable for platforms
which could be configured one way for platform specific
builds and the other for multi-platform builds.
