Subject[PATCH] : ir247_config-2.diff
From
	Hi,

This patch also sent to Configure.help maitainers to make sure
they are in sync ;-)

Jean

ir247_config-2.diff :
-------------------
o [FEATURE] Remove CONFIG_IRDA_OPTIONS. A menu for only 3 items !
o [FEATURE] Set various CONFIG_IRDA options default to YES
o [FEATURE] Advertise more aggressively usage of those options
in Configure.help. Too many bug reports of people not using those.
o [FEATURE] Remove obsolete Configure.help entries

Say Y here is you want IrLAP to send fast RR (Receive Ready) frames

- frame immediately when receiving a frame if its own transmit queue
- is currently empty. This will give a lot of speed improvement when
- receiving much data since the secondary station will not have to
- wait the max. turn around time before it is allowed to transmit the

- will make the IR-diode burn more power and thus reduce your battery

Say Y here if you want the IrDA subsystem to write debug information
to your syslog. You can change the debug level in
/proc/sys/net/irda/debug .

-IrLAP compression support
-CONFIG_IRDA_COMPRESSION
- Compression is _not_ part of the IrDA(tm) protocol specification,
- but it's working great! Linux is the first to try out compression
- support at the IrLAP layer. This means that you will only benefit
- from compression if you are running a Linux <-> Linux configuration.
-
- If you say Y here, you also need to say Y or M to a compression
- protocol below.
-
-IrLAP Deflate compression
-CONFIG_IRDA_DEFLATE
- Say Y here if you want to build support for the Deflate compression
- protocol. The deflate compression (GZIP) is exactly
- the same as the one used by the PPP protocol.
-
- If you want to compile this compression support as a module, say M
- here and read <file:Documentation/modules.txt>. The module will be
- called irda_deflate.o.
