Subject: Re: [PATCH 3/3] Kconfig: organize memory-related config options

I'm sending this through the kbuild maintainer (Michal Marek), and he
asked that I collect a few acks from some mm folks.  I'm ccing the folks
who put some of these option in there, or touched them recently.  A
friendly ack or two would be appreciated.
