Stock 5.1-R install on a P-166.


The stli(4) driver won't build without a kernel option called COMPAT_OLDPCI:


#error "The stallion pci driver requires the old pci compatibility shims"

However, this apparently is not a recognized kernel option:

  options         COMPAT_OLDPCI
  # config SHOEBOX
  SHOEBOX: unknown option "COMPAT_OLDPCI"


  Attempt to follow the instructions inplied by stallion.c, as above. :)
