BTW, something was mentioned to me about this.

This could quite easily screw LKM developers over.

I haven't checked the source yet, but what happens if you compile the kernel
without KMEMSTATS and then compile an LKM, say AFS, with it?

I hope I'm wrong, and AFS won't need to have two versions, one for KMEMSTATS
allocation and one for those without.
