    [S390] nss: disable kexec.
    nss and kexec don't work together since kexec wants to write to the
    read-only text section of the shared kernel image.

          Select this option, if you want to share the text segment of the
          Linux kernel between different VM guests. This reduces memory
          usage with lots of guests but greatly increases kernel size.

          You should only select this option if you know what you are
          doing and want to exploit this feature.
