As part of the VAMOS research project at the University of
Erlangen we are looking at multiple integrity errors in linux'
I've been running a check on the mm/ sourcetree for
config Items not defined in Kconfig and found 1 such case. Sourcecode
blocks depending on these Items are not reachable from a vanilla
kernel -- dead code. I've seen such dead blocks made on purpose
e.g. while integrating new features into the kernel but generally
they're just useless.
We found, that CONFIG_NEED_PER_CPU_KM is a dead symbol, so it isn't defined
anywhere. Cause of that the percpu_km.c is never included anywhere. Is
this a intended dead symbol, for use in out of tree development, or is
this just an error?
