The following patch enables blktap and firmware using config
Specific issues are with POWERPC:
  1) does not require firmware build

The firmware is quite definitely x86-specific. May as well make the build
dependent on CONFIG_X86 rather than introduce another config variable.

  2) nasty build break in libaio

Shouldn't you fix that instead of skirting the issue? :-)

I knew you would say that! :)
Will you take patches to libaio, or are you expecting that to stay clean to the distro? I may have missed this discussion, but why can't we just use the one that comes with the Distro?
