Your attached patch is wrong. Instead of breaking the I2O code, why
don't you just switch the AMI RAID controller out of I2O mode? On
every one I have seen, it is a simple BIOS setting.
If it's impossible to switch it out of I2O mode, then you should not
just ifdef out code necessary for other devices to work; you should
add specific tests for it to the iop and amr drivers.
