    Remove valueless definition of hard-selected RAMFS option
    Since CONFIG_RAMFS is currently hard-selected to "y", and since
    Documentation/filesystems/ramfs-rootfs-initramfs.txt reads as follows:
    "The amount of code required to implement ramfs is tiny, because all the
    work is done by the existing Linux caching infrastructure.  Basically,
    you're mounting the disk cache as a filesystem.  Because of this, ramfs is
    not an optional component removable via menuconfig, since there would be
    negligible space savings."
    It seems pointless to leave this as a Kconfig entry.

-         Ramfs is a file system which keeps all files in RAM. It allows
-         read and write access.
-         It is more of an programming example than a useable file system.  If
-         you need a file system which lives in RAM with limit checking use
-         tmpfs.
-         To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will be called
-         ramfs.
