Hi, Kumar, Guennadi, and Co.

This patch addresses the following issues:

01. makes CFQ the default scheduler, to be in line with the rest of
the kernel.

02. since linkstations are meant to store files, enable large blk

03. disable CONFIG_MIGRATION in in such low memory devices.

04. disable CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM.

05. disable CONFIG_SCSI_LOWLEVEL, as no device under that tree is

06. idem for CONFIG_NETDEV_10000.

07. idem for CONFIG_WIRELESS.

08. idem for CONFIG_HWMON.

09. idem for CONFIG_CRYPTO_HW.


11. keep consistency and disable extended attributes in CIFS, ext3,
and NFS.

This is the patch for tidying the defconfig. I'm still having issues
with the MTD devices, it seems. :-( I will investigate this now.

I can send a similar patch to storcenter.

Did you ever resolve the MTD issue?
