Subject[PATCH] allow hdX=scsi when ide-scsi is a module

The current IDE code doesn't allow the user to reserve a drive to be used
only with ide-scsi emulation, if the ide-scsi layer is compiled as a
module. The following trivial patch fixes the problem, I've been using it
for the last 6 months or so.

The patch removes the explicit dependency on CONFIG_SCSI because ide-scsi
itself requires the SCSI subsystem.

Please apply...


It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt.
