This gives DISCONTIGMEM a bit more help text to explain what it does, not just
when to choose it.

bool "Discontigious Memory"
This option provides enhanced support for discontiguous
memory systems, over FLATMEM. These systems have holes
in their physical address spaces, and this option provides
more efficient handling of these holes. However, the vast
majority of hardware has quite flat address spaces, and
can have degraded performance from extra overhead that
this option imposes.
Many NUMA configurations will have this as the only option.
If unsure, choose "Flat Memory" over this option.
