You know, the funny thing is, the mac_esp.c driver states the following:
* Function : mac_esp_setup(char *str)
* Purpose : booter command line initialization of the overrides array,
* Inputs : str - parameters, separated by commas.
* Currently unused in the new driver; need to add settable parameters to the
* detect function.
I checked back, it seems to have stated this as far back as I can find
And I indeed don't see setup_disconnect being referenced anywhere else
in the driver.
So how this can make a difference is beyond me...
Unless of course the Mac CVS tree has differences not submitted to the
main m68k CVS tree...
<some time later>
Indeed, it does. And indeed the Mac CVS version _does_ do something with
the setup_disconnect parameter. Not surprising it doesn't work too well
with 2.6 kernels then...
