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
(2.2 kernels)...

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...

Kind regards,
