Well, the orignal code was written assuming that the disk list was
just a list of the disk driver internal structures linked onto a list
(this seems weird to link up driver internal structures but, oh well)

I was thinking what I could do is make disk_find a wrapper around
drive_find and return the struct disk * iff the name found is a
DRV_DISK type.  This would mean that I don't need to modify the
autoconf stuff.
