2.5.9-dj1, add one help text to arch/ia64/Config.help.

Post by Steven Col » Sat, 27 Apr 2002 01:20:09



This patch adds a help text to arch/ia64/Config.help.
The CONFIG_IA64_GRANULE_16MB choice option is under the "Kernel hacking"
section for the IA64 arch.  Here is a snippet from arch/ia64/config.in:

choice 'Physical memory granularity'                            \
        "16MB                   CONFIG_IA64_GRANULE_16MB        \
         64MB                   CONFIG_IA64_GRANULE_64MB" 64MB

The help text was based loosely on the one found in 2.4.19-pre7 Configure.help.

   best used in conjunction with the NMI watchdog so that spinlock
   deadlocks are also debuggable.

+CONFIG_IA64_GRANULE_16MB
+  IA64 identity-mapped regions use a large page size called "granules".
+
+  Select "16MB" for a small granule size.
+  Select "64MB" for a large granule size.  This is the current default.

   with a B-step CPU.  You have a B-step CPU if the "revision" field in
   /proc/cpuinfo has a value in the range from 1 to 4.

+CONFIG_IA64_SGI_AUTOTEST
+  Build a kernel used for hardware validation. If you include the
+  keyword "autotest" on the boot command line, the kernel does NOT boot.
+  Instead, it starts all cpus and runs cache coherency tests instead.
+
+  If unsure, say N.
+
+CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_DEBUG
+  Turns on extra debugging code in the SGI SN (Scalable NUMA) platform
+  for IA64.  Unless you are debugging problems on an SGI SN IA64 box,
+  say N.
+
+CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_SIM
+  If you are compiling a kernel that will run under SGI's IA64
+  simulator (Medusa) then say Y, otherwise say N.
+
+CONFIG_SERIAL_SGI_L1_PROTOCOL
+  Uses protocol mode instead of raw mode for the level 1 console on the
+  SGI SN (Scalable NUMA) platform for IA64.  If you are compiling for
+  an SGI SN box then Y is the recommended value, otherwise say N.
+
+CONFIG_PCIBA
+  IRIX PCIBA-inspired user mode PCI interface for the SGI SN (Scalable
+  NUMA) platform for IA64.  Unless you are compiling a kernel for an
+  SGI SN IA64 box, say N.
+
 CONFIG_IA64_MCA
   Say Y here to enable machine check support for IA-64.  If you're
   unsure, answer Y.
