Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+ help
+ If you say Y here then read-write lock processing will count how many

+ bool "Semaphore debugging"

+ help
+ If you say Y here then semaphore processing will issue lots of
+ verbose debugging messages. If you suspect a semaphore problem or a

+config ALPHA_LEGACY_START_ADDRESS
+ bool "Legacy kernel start address"
+ depends on ALPHA_GENERIC
+ default n
+ ---help---
+ The 2.4 kernel changed the kernel start address from 0x310000
+ to 0x810000 to make room for the Wildfire's larger SRM console.
+ Recent consoles on Titan and Marvel machines also require the
+ extra room.
+
+ If you're using aboot 0.7 or later, the bootloader will examine the
+ ELF headers to determine where to transfer control. Unfortunately,
+ most older bootloaders -- APB or MILO -- hardcoded the kernel start
+ address rather than examining the ELF headers, and the result is a
+ hard lockup.
+
+ Say Y if you have a broken bootloader. Say N if you do not, or if
+ you wish to run on Wildfire, Titan, or Marvel.

+ help
+ This option is required for IEEE compliant floating point arithmetic
+ on the Alpha. The only time you would ever not say Y is to say M in
+ order to debug the code. Say Y unless you know what you are doing.
