I've updated the IDE patches on,
as well as the GENERIC kernel and the boot floppy.

Changes since last week:
- Don't try to change the PIO mode of the drive if we can't set it on
  the controller. This confuse some ISA 'intelligent' IDE controllers.
- Emergency fix for non-atapi or non-wd kernels
- Correct a bug that would cause the drives to be unusable on non-32bit
- Support setting PIO/DMA modes for atapi devices the same way it's done
  for wd drives
- PCIIDE: when using DMA, enable fast timings for PIO modes too if possible,
  atapi devices use both.
- PCIIDE: correct settings of UDMA register. UDMA now works.

As usual, please report success/failures.
