Linux-PPC: Floppy patch 1.0
Pavel Fedin aka Sonic released Floppy driver patch for Linux 2.6.8 kernel. This patch allows to use a floppy drive in non-DMA mode on PegasosPPC machines. To use it:
  1. Do not build floppy driver as a module, link it statically. Transferring parameters to it from insmod is still problematic, at least it doesn't work properly on the author's system.
  2. Specify floppy=nodma in kernel's arguments. Also you'll need to specify your drive type here using floppy=[Drive number],[Drive type],cmos. For example, floppy=0,4,cmos specifies type 4 (1.44 mb 3.5") for drive 0.
This patch does not affect operation of the driver in DMA mode so it's safe to use on any platform.
