config IBM_ASM
tristate "Device driver for IBM RSA service processor"
depends on X86 && PCI && EXPERIMENTAL
This option enables device driver support for in-band access to the
IBM RSA (Condor) service processor in eServer xSeries systems.
The ibmasm device driver allows user space application to access
ASM (Advanced Systems Management) functions on the service
processor. The driver is meant to be used in conjunction with
a user space API.
The ibmasm driver also enables the OS to use the UART on the
service processor board as a regular serial port. To make use of
this feature serial driver support (CONFIG_SERIAL_8250) must be
WARNING: This software may not be supported or function
correctly on your IBM server. Please consult the IBM ServerProven
website <> for
information on the specific driver level and support statement
for your IBM server.
If unsure, say N.
config SGI_IOC4
tristate "SGI IOC4 Base IO support"
depends on PCI
This option enables basic support for the IOC4 chip on certain
SGI IO controller cards (IO9, IO10, and PCI-RT). This option
does not enable any specific functions on such a card, but provides
necessary infrastructure for other drivers to utilize.
If you have an SGI Altix with an IOC4-based card say Y.
Otherwise say N.
config TIFM_CORE
tristate "TI Flash Media interface support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on EXPERIMENTAL && PCI
If you want support for Texas Instruments(R) Flash Media adapters
you should select this option and then also choose an appropriate
host adapter, such as 'TI Flash Media PCI74xx/PCI76xx host adapter
support', if you have a TI PCI74xx compatible card reader, for
You will also have to select some flash card format drivers. MMC/SD
cards are supported via 'MMC/SD Card support: TI Flash Media MMC/SD
Interface support (MMC_TIFM_SD)'.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
be called tifm_core.
config TIFM_7XX1
tristate "TI Flash Media PCI74xx/PCI76xx host adapter support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
default TIFM_CORE
This option enables support for Texas Instruments(R) PCI74xx and
PCI76xx families of Flash Media adapters, found in many laptops.
To make actual use of the device, you will have to select some
flash card format drivers, as outlined in the TIFM_CORE Help.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
be called tifm_7xx1.
tristate "Asus Laptop Extras (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on X86
depends on ACPI
depends on LEDS_CLASS
This is the new Linux driver for Asus laptops. It may also support some
MEDION, JVC or VICTOR laptops. It makes all the extra buttons generate
standard ACPI events that go through /proc/acpi/events. It also adds
support for video output switching, LCD backlight control, Bluetooth and
Wlan control, and most importantly, allows you to blink those fancy LEDs.
For more information and a userspace daemon for handling the extra
buttons see <>.
If you have an ACPI-compatible ASUS laptop, say Y or M here.
tristate "MSI Laptop Extras"
depends on X86
depends on ACPI_EC
This is a driver for laptops built by MSI (MICRO-STAR
MSI MegaBook S270 (MS-1013)
Cytron/TCM/Medion/Tchibo MD96100/SAM2000
It adds support for Bluetooth, WLAN and LCD brightness control.
More information about this driver is available at
If you have an MSI S270 laptop, say Y or M here.
tristate "Sony Laptop Extras"
depends on X86 && ACPI
This mini-driver drives the SNC device present in the ACPI BIOS of
the Sony Vaio laptops.
It gives access to some extra laptop functionalities. In its current
form, this driver let the user set or query the screen brightness
through the backlight subsystem and remove/apply power to some
