No there is no comment about a BR2_USE_MMU dependency, because it's not
something the user can "fix" : if your architecture doesn't have a MMU,
it's like this, there's nothing you can do about it.

Well, the patch by itself is then completely useless, because Blackfin
is a noMMU architecture, so postgresql will never work on it.
