    tristate "Snapshot target (EXPERIMENTAL)"
    depends on BLK_DEV_DM && EXPERIMENTAL

    tristate "Mirror target (EXPERIMENTAL)"
    depends on BLK_DEV_DM && EXPERIMENTAL


    It does seem that it might be a good goal to revisit options marked
    EXPERIMENTAL, and see if they still should be marked as such, rather
    than removing the option altogether.

    init/Kconfig describes things in "EXPERIMENTAL" as "alpha-test" - I bet
    there are a few things which have moved beyond this, but are still
    marked as such.
