Summary0017022: Enable Silicon Image sata_sil24 driver in kernel-plus config
DescriptionI would like to request that sata_sil24 driver be enabled in kernel-plus. I have a SATA port multiplier card which requires this driver and and had to compile my own kernel to fully support my setup. This is the option I turned on in the kernel-plus config

CONFIG_SATA_SIL24=m

Out of the box, neither the upstream kernel nor kernel-plus are able to detect my storage due to the lack of this driver.

Thanks

Maybe I am missing something but I rechecked the kernel-plus config on my system and see it disabled.

fgrep SIL24 /boot/config-4.18.0-147.3.1.el8_1.centos.plus.x86_64
# CONFIG_SATA_SIL24 is not set

Thanks

Sorry, my mistake. It is 4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.centos.plus that has SIL24 enabled.

Info for those who get here looking for the sata_sil24 driver, ELRepo has a DUD image for this driver in case it is required for installation ( https://elrepo.org/bugs/view.php?id=986 ).
