Which microcode patch should be selected for MPC870? In the old 2.4
kernel, the CONFIG_UCODE_PATCH was selected. What's the corresponding
CONFIG_I2C_SPI_SMC1_UCODE_PATCH? Since my board doesn't have USB, I
believe USB microcode is irrelevant here. So it comes down the other
two choices. Of course do I really need the patch? My board has I2C
and SMC1, but no SPI.

I chose CONFIG_I2C_SPI_UCODE_PATCH as an experiment but got the
following compilation error:
  CC      arch/powerpc/sysdev/micropatch.o

Obviously there is no spi_t declaration in So where is this
spi_t declared?

Thanks a lot,
