Description Jay Turner 2005-11-15 13:25:24 EST
Description of problem:
VMWare depends on the BusLogic driver being available and we have it disabled in
the RHEL4 kernel.  As a result VMWare has grabbed the BusLogic code from our
kernel source and is making that driver available on a driver disk for their
customers as well as Red Hat supporting this.  For this reason it seems to make
the most sense to just reenable building of the driver in the RHEL4 kernel.
