Re: [PATCH v8 01/25] scsi/atari_scsi: Don't select CONFIG_NVRAM

Hi Finn,

On powerpc, setting CONFIG_NVRAM=n builds a kernel with no NVRAM support.
Setting CONFIG_NVRAM=m enables the /dev/nvram misc device module without
enabling NVRAM support in drivers. Setting CONFIG_NVRAM=y enables the
misc device (built-in) and also enables NVRAM support in drivers.

m68k shares the valkyriefb driver with powerpc, and since that driver uses
NVRAM, it is affected by CONFIG_ATARI_SCSI, because of the use of
"select NVRAM".

Adopt the powerpc convention on m68k to avoid surprises.

This patch temporarily disables CONFIG_NVRAM on Atari, to prevent build
failures when bisecting the rest of this patch series. It gets enabled
again with the introduction of CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_NVRAM_OPS, once the
nvram_* global functions have been moved to an ops struct.

If you have an Atari with built-in NCR5380 SCSI controller (TT,
