Mario sent me in a private mail the .configs. He answered at
"make *config" that he didn't read the release notes. That's good because
it uncovered the following that is a real bug:

ide-proc.c is compiled into idedriver.o even if no IDE support is compiled
into the kernel. That isn't new. The problem that causes these undefined
references is that in -ac4 some functions that use functions from other
ide files (which aren't compiled when building a kernel without IDE
support) are no longer static (because they are now exported to modules).

You only think this is a free country. Like the US the UK spends a lot of
time explaining its a free country because its a police state.
