[libata] Kconfig: Elaborate that SFF is meant for legacy and PATA stuff
Building Linux for an ASUS Eee PC 701 4G with ata2.00: CFA: SILICONMOTION SM223AC, , max UDMA/66 ata2.00: 7815024 sectors, multi 0: LBA ata2.00: configured for UDMA/66 scsi 1:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA SILICONMOTION SM n/a PQ: 0 ANSI: 5 sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] 7815024 512-byte logical blocks: (4.00 GB/3.72 GiB) sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00 sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: disabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA sda: sda1 sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI disk sd 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0 I followed the advice to not use the deprecated old PATA subsystem ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (DEPRECATED) ---> and use the ATA subsystem instead. Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers ---> Unfortunately I needed several tries to find out, that I needed the SFF menu I had not selected before because I had never heard that term before. I think it would have helped me, to have PATA or legacy IDE in that item’s name. Signed-off-by: Paul Menzel <paulepanter@users.sourceforge.net> Signed-off-by: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@redhat.com>
