I realize the chipset will work fine without specific support, but what
I was more interersted in was support for performance enhancements in
the way the kernel supports the intel triton chipsets, and 5-6 others
under 'other ide chipset support'. All those chipsets will function
fine without the kernel support "turned on", but I'd assume they perform
better with it. Thanks though :).
