config FSCACHE_HISTOGRAM
bool "Gather latency information on local caching"
depends on FSCACHE && PROC_FS
help
This option causes latency information to be gathered on local
caching and exported through file:

/proc/fs/fscache/histogram

The generation of this histogram adds a certain amount of overhead to
execution as there are a number of points at which data is gathered,
and on a multi-CPU system these may be on cachelines that keep
bouncing between CPUs. On the other hand, the histogram may be
useful for debugging purposes. Saying 'N' here is recommended.

See Documentation/filesystems/caching/fscache.txt for more information.

It is also disabled on fedora linux images.

Unless you come up with a real good reason to enable it,
this bug report can be closed.
