Hi Randy, Andrei.

I suggest third option for this.
As you know, MMC like ATA Driver and SCSI Driver etc.. can not enable
without CONFIG_BLOCK
So I think that mmc should be depended from CONFIG_BLOCK like other
block device driver.
see the their Kconfig. How do you think ?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
menuconfig ATA
tristate "Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers"
depends on HAS_IOMEM
depends on BLOCK
depends on !(M32R || M68K) || BROKEN


config SCSI
tristate "SCSI device support"
depends on BLOCK
select SCSI_DMA if HAS_DMA
---help---
