[Linux-ia64] [trivial] Request for merging of two sets of redundant SGI IA64 Configure.help texts

Could one of you help resolve the following very trivial problem.  In
2.4.20-pre5 Documentation/Configure.help, there exists two
Configure.help entries for CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_SIM and

The configurators will of course only display the first of the two.
Would someone please indicate which of the texts is the more accurate or
combine them as you see fit.  You can send me the results or make up a
patch yourself.

If this is a moot point, deleting the second text would be the default
thing to do.

(Configure.help maintainer)

1st text for CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_SIM:

  Build a kernel that runs on both the SGI simulator AND on hardware.
  There is a very slight performance penalty on hardware for including this

2nd text for CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_SIM:

Enable SGI Medusa Simulator Support
  If you are compiling a kernel that will run under SGI's IA64
  simulator (Medusa) then say Y, otherwise say N.


1st text for CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_DEBUG:

  This enables addition debug code that helps isolate
  platform/kernel bugs. There is a small but measurable performance
  degradation when this option is enabled.

2nd text for CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN_DEBUG:

Enable SGI SN extra debugging code
  Turns on extra debugging code in the SGI SN (Scalable NUMA) platform
  for IA64.  Unless you are debugging problems on an SGI SN IA64 box,
  say N.
