Heh, I realized this is not completely true.
Users can check whether the feature is __enabled__ by checking the sys fs,
but although it is enabled, it might not be effective.

This might be due to a different number of reasons, vmemmap does not fully
span a PMD, the size we want to add spans more than a single memory block, etc.

That is what

"Note that even when enabled, there are a few cases where the feature is not
 effective."

is supposed to mean.

Anyway, I did not change my opionion on this.

Thanks
