	  Before the switch to the netlink-based uevent source, this was
	  used to hook hotplug scripts into kernel device events. It
	  usually pointed to a shell script at /sbin/hotplug.
	  This should not be used today, because usual systems create
	  many events at bootup or device discovery in a very short time
	  frame. One forked process per event can create so many processes
	  that it creates a high system load, or on smaller systems
	  it is known to create out-of-memory situations during bootup.

	  In this filesystem, the kernel driver core maintains device
	  nodes with their default names and permissions for all
	  registered devices with an assigned major/minor number.
	  Userspace can modify the filesystem content as needed, add
	  symlinks, and apply needed permissions.
	  It provides a fully functional /dev directory, where usually
	  udev runs on top, managing permissions and adding meaningful
	  symlinks.
	  In very limited environments, it may provide a sufficient
	  functional /dev without any further help. It also allows simple
	  rescue systems, and reliably handles dynamic major/minor numbers.

	  This will instruct the kernel to automatically mount the
	  devtmpfs filesystem at /dev, directly after the kernel has
	  mounted the root filesystem. The behavior can be overridden
	  with the commandline parameter: devtmpfs.mount=0|1.
	  This option does not affect initramfs based booting, here
	  the devtmpfs filesystem always needs to be mounted manually
	  after the roots is mounted.
	  With this option enabled, it allows to bring up a system in
	  rescue mode with init=/bin/sh, even when the /dev directory
	  on the rootfs is completely empty.

config FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL
	bool "Include in-kernel firmware blobs in kernel binary"
	depends on FW_LOADER
	default y
	help
	  The kernel source tree includes a number of firmware 'blobs'
91
	  that are used by various drivers. The recommended way to
92
93
94
	  use these is to run "make firmware_install", which, after
	  converting ihex files to binary, copies all of the needed
	  binary files in firmware/ to /lib/firmware/ on your system so
95
96
97
98
99
	  that they can be loaded by userspace helpers on request.

	  Enabling this option will build each required firmware blob
	  into the kernel directly, where request_firmware() will find
	  them without having to call out to userspace. This may be
100
101
	  useful if your root file system requires a device that uses
	  such firmware and do not wish to use an initrd.
102
103

	  This single option controls the inclusion of firmware for
104
105
106
	  every driver that uses request_firmware() and ships its
	  firmware in the kernel source tree, which avoids a
	  proliferation of 'Include firmware for xxx device' options.
107
108
109

	  Say 'N' and let firmware be loaded from userspace.

config EXTRA_FIRMWARE
	string "External firmware blobs to build into the kernel binary"
	depends on FW_LOADER
	help
114
115
	  This option allows firmware to be built into the kernel for the case
	  where the user either cannot or doesn't want to provide it from
116
117
118
119
	  userspace at runtime (for example, when the firmware in question is
	  required for accessing the boot device, and the user doesn't want to
	  use an initrd).

120
121
	  This option is a string and takes the (space-separated) names of the
	  firmware files -- the same names that appear in MODULE_FIRMWARE()
122
123
	  and request_firmware() in the source. These files should exist under
	  the directory specified by the EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR option, which is
124
	  by default the firmware subdirectory of the kernel source tree.
125

126
127
128
129
	  For example, you might set CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="usb8388.bin", copy
	  the usb8388.bin file into the firmware directory, and build the kernel.
	  Then any request_firmware("usb8388.bin") will be satisfied internally
	  without needing to call out to userspace.
130
131

	  WARNING: If you include additional firmware files into your binary
132
	  kernel image that are not available under the terms of the GPL,
133
	  then it may be a violation of the GPL to distribute the resulting
134
	  image since it combines both GPL and non-GPL work. You should
135
136
137
138
139
140
141
142
143
	  consult a lawyer of your own before distributing such an image.

config EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR
	string "Firmware blobs root directory"
	depends on EXTRA_FIRMWARE != ""
	default "firmware"
	help
	  This option controls the directory in which the kernel build system
	  looks for the firmware files listed in the EXTRA_FIRMWARE option.
144
145
146
	  The default is firmware/ in the kernel source tree, but by changing
	  this option you can point it elsewhere, such as /lib/firmware/ or
	  some other directory containing the firmware files.

	  buffers will be aligned only to this specified order. The order is
	  expressed as a power of two multiplied by the PAGE_SIZE.
