With this patch, the Kconfig help text now is incorrect.
Is there a way to explicitly call out in the Kconfig which way devtmpfs
is being created? How about a multiple selection that chooses either
TMPFS or RAMFS, with the default being TMPFS?

So care to redo this so that people can easily determine what is going
to happen easier than this patch currently causes?

thanks,

greg k-h
