    MCA: delete all remaining traces of microchannel bus support. · bb8187d3
    Paul Gortmaker authored
    Hardware with MCA bus is limited to 386 and 486 class machines
    that are now 20+ years old and typically with less than 32MB
    of memory.  A quick search on the internet, and you see that
    even the MCA hobbyist/enthusiast community has lost interest
    in the early 2000 era and never really even moved ahead from
    the 2.4 kernels to the 2.6 series.
    This deletes anything remaining related to CONFIG_MCA from core
    kernel code and from the x86 architecture.  There is no point in
    carrying this any further into the future.
    One complication to watch for is inadvertently scooping up
    stuff relating to machine check, since there is overlap in
    the TLA name space (e.g. arch/x86/boot/mca.c).
