CONFIG_EISA_NAMES: EISA device name database

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_EISA_NAMES:

Help text

By default, the kernel contains a database of all known EISA device names to make the information in sysfs comprehensible to the user. This database increases size of the kernel image by about 40KB, but it gets freed after the system boots up, so it doesn't take up kernel memory. Anyway, if you are building an installation floppy or kernel for an embedded system where kernel image size really matters, you can disable this feature and you'll get device ID instead of names.

When in doubt, say Y.
