Subject[PATCH][Resend] Let SYSVIPC default to 'y'
From: Signed-off-by: Jesper Juhl <>

[This patch was previously submitted on 24 April 2008 01:01]

Andrew; Will you take this in -mm or should I just queue it in Trivial (or
drop it entirely)?

SYSVIPC is a pretty crucial feature that I doubt very much if anyone
except embedded people should even consider disabling - it simply
breaks too much software for a Linux box to really be useful without it,
for most purposes.
For that reason I find it quite odd that the feature defaults to 'No'
currently. I really cannot see any reason why we wouldn't want this to
default to 'Yes', so this patch changes the default by adding 'default y'
to Kconfig.
