Ok. I see your point. All of that only works
if they're all
modular or all static, not a mix of both. Go ahead and modularize
Done so, but indeed only for ATA_PIIX (despite my thinking that
this should be done to AHCI and probably also ATA and SCSI as
What's the justification for doing all of them? The benefits for
faster booting are still there. I wouldn't have modularized PIIX if
there was wasn't a conflict.
This has become largely obsolete now with systemd.
The overall gain we'll have from systemd far offsets any benefit we'll
incur from having ata_piix built-in.
I still think this was a bad idea. We had the very same issue during the
IDE/libata transition, and I thought we had some lessons learned from them.
But no, of _course_ this time it would be different.
