Description of problem:
I have compiled several kernels under 7.3 already, and I get the same fail every
time. My compilations have been on IDE hardware, so it would not be
unreasonable to remover SCSI support to spead up an already slow process. The
kernel compiles (make bzImage), modules compiles (make modules), but the
installation of modules crashes out, stating that certain SCSI modules cannot be
found (I don't remember in my head, but I can probably recreate the problem with
corresponding error messages). As a result, we have to go back to make
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.in config/menuconfig/xconfig, make sure that SCSI support is _not_ chosen.
2.make dep bzImage modules
Actual Results: Complaints about missing SCSI modules
Expected Results: Should not complain about SCSI, as we do not want the support.
Done this on different IDE hardware.
