CONFIG_IBMMCA_SCSI_DEV_RESET: Reset SCSI-devices at boottime

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IBMMCA_SCSI_DEV_RESET:

Help text

By default, SCSI-devices are reset when the machine is powered on. However, some devices exist, like special-control-devices, SCSI-CNC-machines, SCSI-printer or scanners of older type, that do not reset when switched on. If you say Y here, each device connected to your SCSI-bus will be issued a reset-command after it has been probed, while the kernel is booting. This may cause problems with more modern devices, like hard disks, which do not appreciate these reset commands, and can cause your system to hang. So say Y only if you know that one of your older devices needs it; N is the safe answer.
