Tue May 25 12:20:47 CEST 2010 - jbeulich@novell.com

- XEN_DEV_EVTCHN=m for both -xen flavors (-ec2 already have this)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu May 20 21:30:17 CEST 2010 - jeffm@suse.de

- Disabled CONFIG_RT2800PCI (bnc#606243)
  - These devices are handled by the rt2860 staging driver.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Apr 28 10:34:23 CEST 2010 - trenn@suse.de

- Update config files.
  Unify X86_MSR and X86_CPUID configs:
    - CONFIG_X86_CPUID=m
    - CONFIG_X86_MSR=y
  for all i386 and x86_64 flavors.
- Update -ec2 config files (X86_MSR=m again).

  MSRs are more and more used by userspace on X86. Unify all configs
  to =y.
  On -ec2 MSR access is restricted and not that important -> =m
  CPUID is not useful as it can be called in userspace as well, but
  some userspace progs may still need it -> =m

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Apr 26 15:39:13 CEST 2010 - jeffm@suse.de

- Disabled CONFIG_TUNE_CELL on ppc64 (bnc#599045)
  - gcc 4.5 appears to issue invalid instructions, but even if
    that is not the case or the issue is fixed, it was an optimization
    for the cell processor that will most likely not be used
    on most hardware.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Apr 26 03:07:40 CEST 2010 - jeffm@suse.de

- Enabled CONFIG_FIREWIRE (bnc#586172)
  - CONFIG_IEEE1394 is still enabled but deprecated.
