Don't-care.  Should be made unselectable in Kconfig.  No ia64 boxes have
shipped with that kind of floppy drive (ide-floppy on the first boxes).

I doubt anyone put an mc146818rtc chip in an ia64 box.

Do you mean drivers/char/hangcheck-timer.c?  This looks x86-specific to me,
monotonic_clock() is in arch/i386 and arch/x86_64 only.

Definitely no ISA on these boxes.  Shouldn't ISAPNP depend on ISA in Kconfig?
