[PATCH 1/2] longhaul: Mark it as dangerous in Kconfig

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


longhaul quickly caused hard lockups and possibly killed the memory
module on my EPIA-PD board.  It is commented as:

'BIG FAT DISCLAIMER: Work in progress code. Possibly *dangerous*'

Let's put another warning where people are more likely to see it.

One of the nice things about standards is that there are so many of them.
