    No problem ;-)

    At that time, I hadn't done the work to create drivers/Kconfig ;-)
    The main problem for ia64 is the simulator stuff. Maybe something like:

    if !IA64_HP_SIM
    source "drivers/Kconfig"

    if IA64_HP_SIM
    source "drivers/base/Kconfig"
    source "drivers/scsi/Kconfig"
    source "net/Kconfig"
    source "drivers/block/Kconfig"
    source "arch/ia64/hp/sim/Kconfig"

    (I guess Kconfig needs an "else" keyword).

    (Also the duplication of drivers/block/Kconfig is no longer necessary).

    > Also, it looks like your patch makes ACPI non-mandatory. Is that intentional?

    Hmmm... no ;-) I agree the "select" should probably go in -- we seem
    to be infected with ACPI for the foreseeable future ;-(

    I imagine these kinds of patches can go into 2.6.1 -- the freeze should
    let up a bit by then.
