Description Jan Glauber 2009-04-20 06:15:48 EDT
Set CONFIG_SHARED_KERNEL to CONFIG_SHARED_KERNEL=y.

Rationale: Allow the user to share a kernel image under z/VM by using
a special DCSS (shared memory block). If a user runs many Linux guests on top
of z/VM using a shared kernel reduces the memory footprint.
