What does BSD/OS' autoconfig report?
My best guess is that the EIDE controller is located at neither the
primary nor the secondary I/O bases supported by GENERIC, but at a
de-facto-standardized tertiary or quarternary address. I know that
they use I/O ranges 0x168-0x16f and 0x1e8-0x1ef and IRQs 10 and 11,
but I forget which interrupt goes with which range.
