SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 3/7] drivers: parisc: Avoids building driver if CONFIG_PARISC is disabled

Thanks for the info, I will try to use it.

I have tried in some ARCHs and it worked fine. Out of curiosity, I
will try on all

They make available 50k minutes a month for OSS projects. I don't believe they
care how it's spent if its used to build/deploy the project. They even
allow using
several 'jobs' in parallel in order to speed up the process.

Thanks for your help,
