mm: Support compiling out madvise and fadvise
Many embedded systems will not need these syscalls, and omitting them saves space. Add a new EXPERT config option CONFIG_ADVISE_SYSCALLS (default y) to support compiling them out. bloat-o-meter: add/remove: 0/3 grow/shrink: 0/0 up/down: 0/-2250 (-2250) function old new delta sys_fadvise64 57 - -57 sys_fadvise64_64 691 - -691 sys_madvise 1502 - -1502 Signed-off-by: Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org>
