CONFIG_PCMCIA_IOCTL: PCMCIA control ioctl (obsolete)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_PCMCIA_IOCTL:

Help text

If you say Y here, the deprecated ioctl interface to the PCMCIA subsystem will be built. It is needed by the deprecated pcmcia-cs tools (cardmgr, cardctl) to function properly.

You should use the new pcmciautils package instead (see Documentation/Changes for location and details).

This config option will most likely be removed from kernel 2.6.35, the associated code from kernel 2.6.36.

As the PCMCIA ioctl is not locking safe, it depends on !SMP and !PREEMPT.

If unsure, say N.
