It is not full-featured if it doesn't have support for hardlinks, security
labels, extended attributes, etc. Please call it a specialized filesystem
instead, that seems to be much more in line with the comments about pramfs
use cases in this thread...

Oh, and that should be in the Kconfig help text, as well as the stuff that
goes in Documentation/*, obviously. Maybe it already is, I didn't look.
