    OK :-).

    But I learnt a lot here on the kernel.

    Also found not to cut 'n' paste from nano in X. It doesn't perserve tabs...
    so the patch was bum anyway. I only found out it was fubar when I was
    looking at what Matt done to get the struct sizes on different vmlinuz
    builds, and cut and paste back into a file from the mail.

    But here is the results anyway using my .config but with the option off and
    on:


    Orig (off):

    bash-2.05b# nm -t d -rS --size-sort linux-2.6.12orig/vmlinux | grep hwifs
    0000003225966208 0000000000014080 B ide_hwifs


    With the IDE selection option (but not EMBEDDED) with 2 IDE interfaces
    selected (on with 2):

    bash-2.05b# nm -t d -rS --size-sort linux-2.6.12/vmlinux | grep hwifs
    0000003225974400 0000000000002816 B ide_hwifs
