2012-03-30Documentation: remove references to /etc/modprobe.confLucas De Marchi1-1/+1
Usage of /etc/modprobe.conf file was deprecated by module-init-tools and is no longer parsed by new kmod tool. References to this file are replaced in Documentation, comments and Kconfig according to the context. There are also some references to the old /etc/modules.conf from 2.4 kernels that are being removed.

2009-06-07ide: preserve Host Protected Area by default (v2)Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz1-0/+2
From the perspective of most users of recent systems, disabling Host Protected Area (HPA) can break vendor RAID formats, GPT partitions and risks corrupting firmware or overwriting vendor system recovery tools. Unfortunately the original (kernels < 2.6.30) behavior (unconditionally disabling HPA and using full disk capacity) was introduced at the time when the main use of HPA was to make the drive look small enough for the BIOS to allow the system to boot with large capacity drives. Thus to allow the maximum compatibility with the existing setups (using HPA and partitioned with HPA disabled) we automically disable HPA if any partitions overlapping HPA are detected. Additionally HPA can also be disabled using the "nohpa" module parameter (i.e. "ide_core.nohpa=0.0" to disable HPA on /dev/hda). v2: Fix ->resume HPA support.
