HDD drivers compatibility upgrade request for the kernel

Post by doolyo » 2007/10/04 18:35:34

Hello.

I have noticed that by default, all hard drive drivers are turned off in the kernel, except the one we are using.
This is annoying when you move the hard disk to another server or if your motherboard crashes, because the SATA drivers needed will not be available and there will be a kernel panic.
Therefore I suggest to enable all PATA and SATA drivers by default in the kernel as drivers and not as modules (as it is needed at boot-up time). Htere are only a few ones.

Would this be something possible ?

Thanks for any help on that matter.

Daniel
