1763           Normally, and according to the Linux spec, anonymous memory obtained
1764           from mmap() has it's contents cleared before it is passed to
1765           userspace.  Enabling this config option allows you to request that
1766           mmap() skip that if it is given an MAP_UNINITIALIZED flag, thus
1767           providing a huge performance boost.  If this option is not enabled,
1768           then the flag will be ignored.
1770           This is taken advantage of by uClibc's malloc(), and also by
1771           ELF-FDPIC binfmt's brk and stack allocator.

1837           Kernel modules are small pieces of compiled code which can
1838           be inserted in the running kernel, rather than being
1839           permanently built into the kernel.  You use the "modprobe"
1840           tool to add (and sometimes remove) them.  If you say Y here,
1841           many parts of the kernel can be built as modules (by
1842           answering M instead of Y where indicated): this is most
1843           useful for infrequently used options which are not required
1844           for booting.  For more information, see the man pages for
1845           modprobe, lsmod, modinfo, insmod and rmmod.
1847           If you say Y here, you will need to run "make
1848           modules_install" to put the modules under /lib/modules/
1849           where modprobe can find them (you may need to be root to do
1850           this).
