That would be fine with me. The string names are easier for me to read
than an ID number (especially if you were to add additional options
e.g. 1G hugetlb or file backed / shared memory) but it's mostly an
aesthetic preference, so I don't have strong feelings either way.

Definitely. This should be as easy as possible to incorporate into all
selftests.
