Thanks - that was me botching git-send-email --annotate. My sincere
apology for this.

All Atari computers have the ROM port. As such, the driver could be
used on MegaST/E, TT or Falcon variants (these having MMU support so
can run m68k linux).

The ne.c driver is also used on the Q40, a m68k platfrem which
includes the ISA bus. Hence the runtime check for whether the driver
runs on Atari, or some other m68k platform below.

As Geert pointed out, MACH_IS_ATARI is a runtime test on multiplatform
kernels (which are the norm these days, even with m68k).

Would you be OK if I expanded the comment like this?

/* ne.c is used on m68k Atari and Q40 computers - the Atari ROM-port
adapter is 8-bit, Q40 uses ISA */

> is set?  And even if it isn't then just set 48 for MACH_IS_ATARI and

This would limit the runtime test to the case where it is actually
needed (untested):

#elif defined(CONFIG_ATARI) && defined(CONFIG_Q40)
/* multiplatform m68k kernel - the Atari ROM-port adapter is 8-bit,
Q40 uses ISA */
#  define DCR_VAL (MACH_IS_ATARI ? 0x48 : 0x49)
#elif defined(CONFIG_ATARI) /* no Q40 support - 8-bit mode on Atari ROM port */
#  define DCR_VAL 0x48
#else
#  define DCR_VAL 0x49
#endif

Are there any other m68k platforms that use the ne.c driver, Geert?
apne, hydra and zorro8390 all have their own separate drivers - any
others?

Fair enough - I can do that. I though using the mach level one made it
clearer this is about multiplatform issues.

We still need the runtime test on kernels configured for both Atari
and Q40 though. Which variant do you prefer?

Thanks,

  Michael
