CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_SATA: Support for SATA (deprecated; conflicts with libata SATA driver)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_SATA:

Help text

There are two drivers for Serial ATA controllers.

The main driver, "libata", uses the SCSI subsystem and supports most modern SATA controllers. In order to use it you may take a look at "Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) drivers".

The IDE driver (which you are currently configuring) supports a few first-generation SATA controllers.

In order to eliminate conflicts between the two subsystems, this config option enables the IDE driver's SATA support. Normally this is disabled, as it is preferred that libata supports SATA controllers, and this (IDE) driver supports PATA controllers.

If unsure, say N.
