//config: help
//config: fdflush is only needed when changing media on slightly-broken
//config: removable media drives. It is used to make Linux believe that a
//config: hardware disk-change switch has been actuated, which causes Linux to
//config: forget anything it has cached from the previous media. If you have
//config: such a slightly-broken drive, you will need to run fdflush every time
//config: you change a disk. Most people have working hardware and can safely
//config: leave this disabled.
//config:config FREERAMDISK
//config: bool "freeramdisk (1.3 kb)"
//config: default y
//config: select PLATFORM_LINUX
//config: help
//config: Linux allows you to create ramdisks. This utility allows you to
//config: delete them and completely free all memory that was used for the
//config: ramdisk. For example, if you boot Linux into a ramdisk and later
//config: pivot_root, you may want to free the memory that is allocated to the
//config: ramdisk. If you have no use for freeing memory from a ramdisk, leave
//config: this disabled.
