Yes, thanks from me also. It occurs only for allmodconfig and I already have
a Kconfig fix* but not fully-tested yet so, figuring that Greg's CONFIG_BROKEN
patch would turn ramster off for now anyway, I didn't rush the fix to you or Greg.

Apologies again, but I am (slowly) learning. :-(


* RAMster does work very nicely but, for various reasons, requires
CONFIG_RAMSTER=y and CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS=y, so ramster Kconfig needs
"depends on CONFIGFS_FS=y" not just "depends on CONFIGFS_FS".
(Patch forthcoming Greg.)
