Sure - I already built a minimal kernel. But IMHO there should be
pre-built kernels for (almost) all configurations. Its clear that one
kernel won't cut it (there are no modules, are there?). The current
deb already has a couple of ncr drivers disabled. I just wanted to
provide a datapoint - if more people reported that eatadma was a
problem for them, it should also be disabled per default, with
alternative kernels providing bootstrap support for those needing the
dangerous drivers.

The most obvious first cut is probably to have a ide version without
any scsi drivers.

Thanks, I just thought it was no longer supported, because
"debian/rules build" did not work out-of-the-box.
