CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX: NCR53C8XX SCSI support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX has multiple definitions:

NCR53C8XX SCSI support found in drivers/scsi/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C8XX:

Help text

This is the BSD ncr driver adapted to Linux for the NCR53C8XX family of PCI-SCSI controllers. This driver supports parity checking, tagged command queuing and fast synchronous data transfers up to 80 MB/s with wide FAST-40 LVD devices and controllers.

Recent versions of the 53C8XX chips are better supported by the option "SYM53C8XX SCSI support", below.

Note: there is yet another driver for the 53c8xx family of controllers ("NCR53c7,8xx SCSI support" above). If you want to use them both, you need to say M to both and build them as modules, but only one may be active at a time. If you have a 53c8xx board, you probably do not want to use the "NCR53c7,8xx SCSI support".

Please read Documentation/scsi/ncr53c8xx.txt for more information.
