Unfortunately there is the problem that the map driver itself is a
tristate, so if this is built as a module, the symbol will not be
available to you. On the other hand, if it doesn't need to ever really be
a module, converting it to a bool ought to be workable. There are no
in-tree users that enable this as a module anyways.
