# PCI configuration
config PCI_MSI
bool "Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X)"
depends on PCI
depends on (X86_LOCAL_APIC && X86_IO_APIC) || IA64
This allows device drivers to enable MSI (Message Signaled
Interrupts). Message Signaled Interrupts enable a device to
generate an interrupt using an inbound Memory Write on its
PCI bus instead of asserting a device IRQ pin.
Use of PCI MSI interrupts can be disabled at kernel boot time
by using the 'pci=nomsi' option. This disables MSI for the
entire system.
If you don't know what to do here, say N.
bool "PCI Multi-threaded probe (EXPERIMENTAL)"
Say Y here if you want the PCI core to spawn a new thread for
every PCI device that is probed. This can cause a huge
speedup in boot times on multiprocessor machines, and even a
smaller speedup on single processor machines.
But it can also cause lots of bad things to happen. A number
of PCI drivers cannot properly handle running in this way,
some will just not work properly at all, while others might
decide to blow up power supplies with a huge load all at once,
so use this option at your own risk.
It is very unwise to use this option if you are not using a
boot process that can handle devices being created in any
order. A program that can create persistent block and network
device names (like udev) is a good idea if you wish to use
this option.
Again, use this option at your own risk, you have been warned!
When in doubt, say N.
config PCI_DEBUG
bool "PCI Debugging"
depends on PCI && DEBUG_KERNEL
Say Y here if you want the PCI core to produce a bunch of debug
messages to the system log. Select this if you are having a
problem with PCI support and want to see more of what is going on.
When in doubt, say N.
config HT_IRQ
bool "Interrupts on hypertransport devices"
default y
depends on PCI && X86_LOCAL_APIC && X86_IO_APIC
This allows native hypertransport devices to use interrupts.
If unsure say Y.
