SubjectCONFIG_PCI_BIOS in 2.1.132

In 2.1.132 I've found the following patch:

@@ -39,6 +40,9 @@
if [ "$CONFIG_PCI" = "y" ]; then
bool ' PCI BIOS support' CONFIG_PCI_BIOS
bool ' PCI direct access support' CONFIG_PCI_DIRECT
+ if [ "$CONFIG_PCI_BIOS" = "n" -a "$CONFIG_PCI_DIRECT" = "n" ]; then
+ define_bool CONFIG_PCI_BIOS "y"
+ fi
bool ' PCI quirks' CONFIG_PCI_QUIRKS
if [ "$CONFIG_PCI_QUIRKS" = "y" -a "$CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL" = "y" ]; then
bool ' PCI bridge optimization (experimental)' CONFIG_PCI_OPTIMIZE

I think we should not silently assume we should use the PCI BIOS if the
user has selected neither PCI BIOS nor PCI direct access. If neither
is selected, the PCI driver just refuses to compile and tells the user
he should configure it properly.

Have a nice fortnight
