Subject[PATCH] RAM block device support module name update in Kconfig
RAM block device support module name changed to brd.ko 
some years ago with an "rd" alias to match previous module implementation.
This patch updates its Kconfig definition.

For details, read <file:Documentation/blockdev/ramdisk.txt>.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
- module will be called rd.
+ module will be called brd. An alias "rd" has been defined

Most normal users won't need the RAM disk functionality, and can
thus say N here.
