Things depending on CONFIG_SCSI_GENERIC_NCR53C400:

#ifdef CONFIG_SCSI_GENERIC_NCR53C400
#define PSEUDO_DMA
#endif

Defining PSEUDO_DMA should not break anything, just makes code bigger a bit. We can probably just define it always in g_NCR5380.c.


This looks weird. I don't have any card with a BIOS to test.
#ifdef CONFIG_SCSI_GENERIC_NCR53C400
#define BIOSPARAM
#define NCR5380_BIOSPARAM generic_NCR5380_biosparam
#else
#define NCR5380_BIOSPARAM NULL
#endif


This looks very wrong and should be done at runtime:
#ifdef CONFIG_SCSI_GENERIC_NCR53C400
#define NCR5380_region_size 16
#else
#define NCR5380_region_size 8
#endif

I'll integrate the enabler into the driver. It's like "wakeup sequence for the NCR53C400A and DTC3181E */" in g_NCR5380.c, only the magic numbers are different.
