Huh, so IDE scsi emulation doesn't? (Not that I use it. I want SCSI _off_.)

Hmmm... I just extracted a fresh tarball and tried again and had the same
problem. Possibly I'm looking in the wrong place? "Device drivers"->"SCSI
Devices", top of the menu the option is "---" instead of selectable. Seems

It's too late in the development cycle to complain about the menu layout, but
as soon as 2.7 opens... (Okay, I'll get lost in the noise, but still...)


Don't worry, if I get really bored, I'll start sticking printfs into kconfig.
