Tejun Heo - Oct. 3, 2009, 9:27 a.m.
Till now only one board, ASUS M2A-VM, can do 64bit dma with recent
BIOSen.  Enabling 64bit DMA by default already broke three boards.
Enabling 64bit DMA isn't worth these regressions.  Disable 64bit DMA
by default and enable it only on boards which are known to work.

This doesn't apply to the 2.6.31-stable tree.

Tejun, could you respin this for the stable release, if you feel it
needs to be there?

thanks,
