Andrew asked me to not use "select" in Kconfig files due to some
unspecified problems seen in the past, so my latest patchset makes the
subsystems depend on containers rather than selecting them; I prefer
the select approach over the dependency approach, but if select does
have problems then we should be consistent.

For V11, the .name field should just be called something like 'usage';
the subsystem name is automatically prefixed.

For the V11 patchset, you'll want to replace these three lines with just

  return &mem->css;

There's a container_add_files() API in V10 and above that lets you
register an array of files in one go.

Maybe just "memory" or "pages" for the container name?
