Subject[PATCH 2.6.17-rc5-mm2 17/18] sbp2: provide helptext for CONFIG_IEEE1394_SBP2_PHYS_DMA and mark it experimental
It appears I will not get it fixed overnight.

+ This builds sbp2 for use with non-OHCI host adapters which do not
+ support physical DMA or for when ohci1394 is run with phys_dma=0.
+ Physical DMA is data movement without assistence of the drivers'
+ interrupt handlers. This option includes the interrupt handlers
+ that are required in absence of this hardware feature.
+ This option is buggy and currently broken on some architectures.
+ If unsure, say N.
