+EISA support
+ The Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) bus was
+ developed as an open alternative to the IBM MicroChannel bus.
+ The EISA bus provided some of the features of the IBM MicroChannel
+ bus while maintaining backward compatibility with cards made for
+ the older ISA bus. The EISA bus saw limited use between 1988 and 1995
+ when it was made obsolete by the PCI bus.
+ Say Y here if you are building a kernel for an EISA-based machine.
+ Otherwise, say N.
