I see.

We need this for other SCSI cards not only wd33c93. For example, we
have cards for PC98 that use aha152x, aic7xxx, advansys and sym53c8xx
drivers.
PC98 architecture has own boot selector and can boot any of 16 partitions
per 1 drive. The partition table conatins C/H/S geometry. And we can
assign non zero head or sector. Boot selector reads the partition table
and call BIOS by C/H/S parameters on boottime. If geometry is not mach
to BIOS, cannot boot from the partition created on linux.

I supposed, I use this patch with "#ifdef CONFIG_WD33C93_PIO" in
wd33c98.c.
