[PATCH] SCSI_SATA has to be a tristate
SCSI=m must disallow static drivers. The problem is that all the SATA drivers depend on SCSI_SATA. With SCSI=m and SCSI_SATA=y this allows the static enabling of the SATA drivers with unwanted effects, e.g.: - SCSI=m, SCSI_SATA=y, SCSI_ATA_ADMA=y -> SCSI_ATA_ADMA is built statically but scsi/built-in.o is not linked into the kernel - SCSI=m, SCSI_SATA=y, SCSI_ATA_ADMA=y, SCSI_SATA_AHCI=m -> SCSI_ATA_ADMA and libata are built statically but scsi/built-in.o is not linked into the kernel, SCSI_SATA_AHCI is built modular (unresolved symbols due to missing libata) Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <> Cc: Jeff Garzik <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Jeff Garzik <>
