General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GAYLE has multiple definitions:

Amiga Gayle IDE interface support found in drivers/ide/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GAYLE:

Help text

This is the IDE driver for the Amiga Gayle IDE interface. It supports both the `A1200 style' and `A4000 style' of the Gayle IDE interface, This includes builtin IDE interfaces on some Amiga models (A600, A1200, A4000, and A4000T), and IDE interfaces on the Zorro expansion bus (M-Tech E-Matrix 530 expansion card). Say Y if you have an Amiga with a Gayle IDE interface and want to use IDE devices (hard disks, CD-ROM drives, etc.) that are connected to it. Note that you also have to enable Zorro bus support if you want to use Gayle IDE interfaces on the Zorro expansion bus.

The configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GAYLE:

Help text

This is the IDE driver for the Amiga Gayle IDE interface. It supports both the `A1200 style' and `A4000 style' of the Gayle IDE interface, This includes on-board IDE interfaces on some Amiga models (A600, A1200, A4000, and A4000T), and IDE interfaces on the Zorro expansion bus (M-Tech E-Matrix 530 expansion card).

It also provides support for the so-called `IDE doublers' (made by various manufacturers, e.g. Eyetech) that can be connected to the on-board IDE interface of some Amiga models. Using such an IDE doubler, you can connect up to four instead of two IDE devices to the Amiga's on-board IDE interface. The feature is enabled at kernel runtime using the "gayle.doubler" kernel boot parameter.

Say Y if you have an Amiga with a Gayle IDE interface and want to use IDE devices (hard disks, CD-ROM drives, etc.) that are connected to it.

Note that you also have to enable Zorro bus support if you want to use Gayle IDE interfaces on the Zorro expansion bus.
