A good practice (tried this with my now dead UDB and with Intel machines)
is to compile INTO the kernel support for the controller off which the
machine boots and compile the other controller's driver as a loadable
Worked thus with a Multia and spare Buslogic 946C and with an Intel with
a Buslogic 958 and an Aha2940 driving a cdrom.
