	  Support raw access to differentiated (persistence, bandwidth,
	  latency...) memory via an mmap(2) capable character
	  device.  Platform firmware or a device driver may identify a
	  platform memory resource that is differentiated from the
	  baseline memory pool.  Mappings of a /dev/daxX.Y device impose
	  restrictions that make the mapping behavior deterministic.

	  driver consumes memory ranges allocated and exported by the
	  libnvdimm sub-system.

	  Support access to persistent memory as if it were RAM.  This
	  allows easier use of persistent memory by unmodified
	  applications.

	  To use this feature, a DAX device must be unbound from the
	  device_dax driver (PMEM DAX) and bound to this kmem driver
	  on each boot.

	  Say N if unsure.
