CONFIG_BLOCK_LEGACY_AUTOLOAD: Legacy autoloading support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_BLOCK_LEGACY_AUTOLOAD:

Help text

Enable loading modules and creating block device instances based on accesses through their device special file. This is a historic Linux feature and makes no sense in a udev world where device files are created on demand, but scripts that manually create device nodes and then call losetup might rely on this behavior.
