I downloaded the ide. from and I
applied it to 2.4.17. Compiles fine, but now I'm looking for documentation
and there doesn't seem to be any on Could you provide
us with basic help text for the following new configuration options?


Which ones are we supposed to enable for better performance, reliability,
etc. and which ones are for compatibility? I would guess
CONFIG_IDEDMA_ONLYDISK pertains to the latter category for example.

Please CC me, I'm not on linux-kernel.
