I ran into a small configuration problem a couple of days ago while
using menuconfig to setup a new kernel for my laptop. Basically,
it refused to show the airo.c driver as an option. After looking
at the Kconfig files I figured out it was because I did not have ISA
enabled -- but I'm not using an ISA version of the card so it should
not be a dependency.
I originally reported it to Jean Tourrilhes but he said that netdev
would be a better place to send it and that Javier might know why it
was added. My original message is included below.
