+ coprocessor or this emulation.
+
+ If you don't have a math coprocessor, you need to say Y here; if you

+ the Memory Type Range Registers (MTRRs) may be used to control
+ processor access to memory ranges. This is most useful if you have
+ a video (VGA) card on a PCI or AGP bus. Enabling write-combining
+ allows bus write transfers to be combined into a larger transfer
+ before bursting over the PCI/AGP bus. This can increase performance
+ of image write operations 2.5 times or more. Saying Y here creates a
+ /proc/mtrr file which may be used to manipulate your processor's
+ MTRRs. Typically the X server should use this.
+
+ This code has a reasonably generic interface so that similar
+ control registers on other processors can be easily supported
+ as well:
+
+ The Cyrix 6x86, 6x86MX and M II processors have Address Range
+ Registers (ARRs) which provide a similar functionality to MTRRs. For
+ these, the ARRs are used to emulate the MTRRs.
+ The AMD K6-2 (stepping 8 and above) and K6-3 processors have two
+ MTRRs. The Centaur C6 (WinChip) has 8 MCRs, allowing
+ write-combining. All of these processors are supported by this code
+ and it makes sense to say Y here if you have one of them.
+
+ Saying Y here also fixes a problem with buggy SMP BIOSes which only
+ set the MTRRs for the boot CPU and not for the secondary CPUs. This
+ can lead to all sorts of problems, so it's good to say Y here.
+
+ You can safely say Y even if your machine doesn't have MTRRs, you'll

+ it has been loaded by the boot loader and will ignore above physical
+ address.
+
+ In normal kdump cases one does not have to set/change this option

+ vmlinux instead. vmlinux is not relocatable hence a kernel needs
+ to be specifically compiled to run from a specific memory area
+ (normally a reserved region) and this option comes handy.
+
+ So if you are using bzImage for capturing the crash dump, leave
+ the value here unchanged to 0x100000 and set CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y.
+ Otherwise if you plan to use vmlinux for capturing the crash dump

+ passed to the panic-ed kernel. Typically this parameter is set as
+ crashkernel=64M@16M. Please take a look at
+ Documentation/kdump/kdump.txt for more details about crash dumps.
+
+ Usage of bzImage for capturing the crash dump is recommended as
+ one does not have to build two kernels. Same kernel can be used
+ as production kernel and capture kernel. Above option should have
+ gone away after relocatable bzImage support is introduced. But it

- The Cyrix 6x86, 6x86MX and M II processors have Address Range

- and it makes sense to say Y here if you have one of them.
-
- Saying Y here also fixes a problem with buggy SMP BIOSes which only

-
- In normal kdump cases one does not have to set/change this option

-
- So if you are using bzImage for capturing the crash dump, leave
- the value here unchanged to 0x200000 and set CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y.
- Otherwise if you plan to use vmlinux for capturing the crash dump
- change this value to start of the reserved region (Typically 16MB

- specified in the "crashkernel=YM@XM" command line boot parameter
- passed to the panic-ed kernel. Typically this parameter is set as
- crashkernel=64M@16M. Please take a look at
- Documentation/kdump/kdump.txt for more details about crash dumps.
