It happens in the driveres/block/block.o as described in the quoted text
below. Ignore the first two lines about `access_process_vm' and
`is_dumpable' and consider the remaining lines. The function
floppy_hardint() is what is complaining about, but I traced the outb_p()
back to /include/asm_68k/io.h as I described below.
A grep of the source tree shows that floppy_hardint is referenced in
in the m68k files. The floppy_hardint() function does use these calls.

I see that CONFIG_AMIGA_PCMCIA is set in the 2.4.20 Debian release
binary config which brings in this support then.

No, CONFIG_FLOPPY is not set in my .config. It is not set in the
2.4.20 Debian release binary Config-2.4.20 either. I do have
CONFIG_AMIGA_FLOPPY enabled though, which is also enabled in the Debian
2.4.20 release config.

I did not know that. Thanks.
