    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.
