Bug#603533: Missing sl82c105 ide module on IBM IntelliStation POWER 275
> This controller is not PowerPC specific. It can be run by traditional
> IDE driver or by modern libata pata driver. PowerPC kernel is compiled
> with the traditional IDE driver (sl82c105 module). Other kernel flavors
> use modern libata pata driver (pata_sl82c105). These two modules won't
> be used together, so a kernel flavor is compiled with either traditional
> IDE, or libata driver, but not both.
> I'm not quite sure why is PowerPC kernel not compiled with the modern
> libpata driver in Squeeze. At some point in the future all traditional
> IDE drivers will be purged out, and pata_sl82c105 will appear in the
> PowerPC flavor, too.
Miguel, please make this change into powerpc udebs only so we avoid
After squeeze we ought to review those udebs again and discuss with
kernel team about moving to libata for ppc too.
