CONFIG_GSC_LASI and CONFIG_SUPERIO in drivers/parisc/Kconfig.
Search for "Floppy" in  drivers/parisc/lasi.c and superio.c

Because of an on-going lawsuit, HP was not able to publish documentation
for LASI floppy controller (or it's bugs). We only have one cheesy
document for the NS87560UBD chip.

I don't recall any work was completed to enable floppy under those
chips but someone might want to take another whack at it in the future.
