Subjectproblem in drivers/block/Config.in
Date

hi,

I noticed that the option CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT will always be "y",
even if CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT="n". I checked with kernels 2.2.18
and 2.2.19.

the file responsible is "drivers/block/Config.in", around line 126.
it reads:

# PARIDE doesn't need PARPORT, but if PARPORT is configured as a module,
# PARIDE must also be a module. The bogus CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT option
# controls the choices given to the user ...

if [ "$CONFIG_PARPORT" = "y" -o "$CONFIG_PARPORT" = "n" ] ; then
define_bool CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT y
else
define_bool CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT m
fi

so, as you can see, CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT will be set to "yes" even
if CONFIG_PARPORT="no".

why not simply write:

define_bool CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT $CONFIG_PARPORT

instead?
