    Subject[PATCH] link-order of drivers outside drivers/scsi (i2o)
    Alan and others,

    The following patch changes the link order of i2o to link:

    scsi core - hosts - i2o - upper layers.

    The patch moves things around a bit, like all upper layer drivers
    going into scsi/upper. Other drivers outside drivers/scsi can
    be changed to link in after the other hosts by just moving them
    in the top Makefile.

    Note that for this to work properly, i2o (and the others) needs to
    be converted to initialization by initcalls. This is trivial? or do the module
    case differ from builtin?

    This patch is pretty big(625Kbytes), so grab it from:

    It includes a lot of work from Michael Chastain.

    A typical patched kernel compile with everyting built into the kernel looks
    like this:

    drivers/ide/idedriver.o drivers/scsi/scsidrv.o drivers/i2o/i2o.o
    drivers/scsi/upper/scsi_upper.o drivers/...

    The scsi_upper.o object includes st, sr, sg, sd.

    Have a nice day.
