I modified the wd driver to use bus.h and added a PCI front-end some
time ago. Unfortunately, I then found that:
1) the IDE chip I had was hard-wired to `legacy' mode, so I couldn't
even test it, and
2) there's a conflict between the port numbers used by the ISA IDE
controller and ISA floppy controller, which causes one or the other
(currently the floppy) to not be detected.
I have reasonable hardware now, so I can actually test it, but the
conflict needs to be dealt with somehow.
