Martin, may I suggest that the next line of cleanups should be to remove
all vestiges of the old global interrupt locking from the IDE driver?
Including, for example, the crap "PCI method 1" access stuff in CMD640x..

Also, if you turn on spinlock debugging, that tends to help find the
really silly things faster (leaving the harder races to be solved by
brainforce ;)
