Only if you intend to never support non-PCI, non-EISA older boxes.

Regardless of your intent - proper combinations of CONFIG_xxxxx
are supposed to be handled by the (x)config step of the build process.
After all - that is what "configure" means (in English).

To do a clean job of this - a selection of "Box Model" (similar to "Processor Type")
may have to be added to the configuration scripts.  With corresponding #ifdef/#ifndef
statements in the relavent code.

At the moment - I have tunnel vision - I am focused on getting a personal copy
of parisc-linux to boot on my model 720 box.

The comments and findings I post to the mailing lists may be freely disregarded
by anyone not interested them.  Still, they will exist in the mail list archives so that
any developer working on a public version of this kernel can use them for hints, leads
and other ideas.
