Have these patches been submitted for review for inclusion into the main
kernel?

I'm still running the old IO-APIC patch (Uptime 3d 20h) and having no
issues whatsoever.

Are all of the patches at that address you provide necessary?

What do the IDE ones claim to fix? I have had no real issue with IDE at
all.. being able to burn CDs, DVDs, use my ATA133 drive for hdparm,
greps, compilation, and general use.....
