config PAGE_EXTENSION
	bool "Extend memmap on extra space for more information on page"
	---help---
	  Extend memmap on extra space for more information on page. This
	  could be used for debugging features that need to insert extra
	  field for every page. This extension enables us to save memory
	  by not allocating this extra memory according to boottime
	  configuration.

config DEBUG_PAGEALLOC
	bool "Debug page memory allocations"
	depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
	depends on !HIBERNATION || ARCH_SUPPORTS_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC && !PPC && !SPARC
	depends on !KMEMCHECK
	select PAGE_EXTENSION
	select PAGE_POISONING if !ARCH_SUPPORTS_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC
	---help---
	  Unmap pages from the kernel linear mapping after free_pages().
	  Depending on runtime enablement, this results in a small or large
	  slowdown, but helps to find certain types of memory corruption.

	  For architectures which don't enable ARCH_SUPPORTS_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC,
	  fill the pages with poison patterns after free_pages() and verify
	  the patterns before alloc_pages().  Additionally,
	  this option cannot be enabled in combination with hibernation as
	  that would result in incorrect warnings of memory corruption after
	  a resume because free pages are not saved to the suspend image.

	  By default this option will have a small overhead, e.g. by not
	  allowing the kernel mapping to be backed by large pages on some
	  architectures. Even bigger overhead comes when the debugging is
	  enabled by DEBUG_PAGEALLOC_ENABLE_DEFAULT or the debug_pagealloc
	  command line parameter.

config DEBUG_PAGEALLOC_ENABLE_DEFAULT
	bool "Enable debug page memory allocations by default?"
	default n
	depends on DEBUG_PAGEALLOC
	---help---
	  Enable debug page memory allocations by default? This value
	  can be overridden by debug_pagealloc=off|on.
