Subject[PATCH RFC] xen: make it possible to disable XEN_TMEM
XEN_TMEM config option has no prompt and it is enabled as module by
default if CLEANCACHE or FRONTSWAP options are set with no way to disable
it. The only in-tree user of the tmem interface is xen-selfballoon which
can itself be disabled so it makes sense to make it possible to disable
XEN_TMEM too. In theory, both these options could be unified under the
XEN_SELFBALLOONING but other (out-of-tree) users of the tmem interface
may exist and someone may want to keep them supported without enabling

- I don't know much about tmem and its users thus RFC.
