CONFIG_INDIRECT_PIO: Access I/O in non-MMIO mode

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_INDIRECT_PIO:

Help text

On some platforms where no separate I/O space exists, there are I/O hosts which can not be accessed in MMIO mode. Using the logical PIO mechanism, the host-local I/O resource can be mapped into system logic PIO space shared with MMIO hosts, such as PCI/PCIe, then the system can access the I/O devices with the mapped-logic PIO through I/O accessors.

This way has relatively little I/O performance cost. Please make sure your devices really need this configure item enabled.

When in doubt, say N.
