SubjectRe: 2.4.19rc2 and Promise RAID controller

[Yup, I have noticed that and haven't forward ported this part to 2.5]

Bug is with checking CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE, it should be #ifndef,
not #ifdef. Also this option should be by default turned _ON_.

So if somebody wants to use Promise _closed source_ driver for
"RAID" he/she has to disable this option.

Promise wants to remove this option and make people use their closed
source drivers, but they should get red light on this change.

And this comment should be removed from pdc202xx.c:
"
* Linux kernel will misunderstand FastTrak ATA-RAID series as Ultra
* IDE Controller, UNLESS you enable "CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE"
* That's you can use FastTrak ATA-RAID controllers as IDE controllers.
"
as it is bogus and it is not Linux's fault et all.

Regards
