As said before I don't think this should be a merge blocker. I actually
see this more of an experiment as the sharing might make things worse.

For the initial merge I think they should be kept separate, as
referencing other file systems Kconfig variable is confusing.
Investingating if we could a single common one sounds like a good idea,
