	  Support raw access to differentiated (persistence, bandwidth,

	  device.  Platform firmware or a device driver may identify a

	  restrictions that make the mapping behavior deterministic.

	help
	  EFI 2.8 platforms, and others, may advertise 'specific purpose'
	  memory. For example, a high bandwidth memory pool. The
	  indication from platform firmware is meant to reserve the
	  memory from typical usage by default. This driver creates
	  device-dax instances for these memory ranges, and that also
	  enables the possibility to assign them to the DEV_DAX_KMEM
	  driver to override the reservation and add them to kernel
	  "System RAM" pool.

	  Say M if unsure.

	help
	  Support access to persistent, or other performance
	  differentiated memory as if it were System RAM. This allows
	  easier use of persistent memory by unmodified applications, or
	  adds core kernel memory services to heterogeneous memory types
	  (HMEM) marked "reserved" by platform firmware.

	  To use this feature, a DAX device must be unbound from the
	  device_dax driver and bound to this kmem driver on each boot.

	  Say N if unsure.

	help
	  Older versions of the libdaxctl library expect to find all
	  device-dax instances under /sys/class/dax. If libdaxctl in
	  your distribution is older than v58 say M, otherwise say N.
