    SubjectRe: [2.6 patch] ARM: always select HAVE_IDE

    Let's look at the rest of the situation surrounding HAVE_IDE first.
    It's something of a mess:

    avr32, m68knommu, ppc, s390 and v850 do not have asm/ide.h

    avr32, m68knommu, ppc, v850 all set HAVE_IDE, arch/s390/Kconfig contains
    no reference.

    avr32 supports PATA (which is IDE).

    Everything else provides an asm/ide.h and sets HAVE_IDE.


    Q1. Do avr32, m68knommu, ppc, v850 have IDE support or do they not?
    Q2. Should avr32, m68knommu, ppc, v850 supply an asm/ide.h header?
    Q3. Is it worth supporting HAVE_IDE for all kernel architectures when
    its just one (s390) which supports neither IDE nor ATA - or would
    something more generic covering both be appropriate.
