Subject[PATCH] g_NCR5380_mmio, kernel 2.6.7
g_NCR5380_mmio.ko does not find hardware.

I found that this very short file g_NCR5380_mmio.c, simply rebuilds
g_NCR5380.c with a symbol defined for compile-time changes. However, the #if
statements in the latter use a slightly different symbol (prefixed with
CONFIG_) which doesn't seem be get set in 2.6.x at compile time. This patch
allows the driver to ID the hardware.

We, here at Octagon Systems, still make an old micro-pc (8-bit ISA) SCSI host
adapter based on the 53C400A chip supported by this driver. I doubt many
still use it, but as this is still an active product, we need to continue to
offer support with our CPUs now available / compatable with Linux 2.6
kernels. If anyone has a similar card and it is working without this patch,
please let me know what I did wrong.

Since we're an x86 shop, this has only been tested on x86 systems. I doubt
that will make any difference, however.
