I apologize: I did not specify that the patch for configure.help was for
2.4.0-test series only. Looking at 2.2.17, there is _no_ CONFIG_EISA.

Well, it got added sometime, and its there now for 2.4.0-testX. I am just
trying to fill in the blanks so that the help buttons have something helpful
to say.
