    I don't use it (note the "there's no isp2x00" bit above). But it's
    still part of ia64 defconfig (which I don't maintain), and it's easier
    to tell people "use generic_defconfig" than to tell them to remove

    In general, I think if a driver is in the tree, it should be fair
    game for bugfixes. In fact, I see you did the most recent one to
    qlogicfc :-)
