    This change is a bad idea. Its called "addressing" because that is what
    it is about (see SATA and ATA specs). In future SATA addressing becomes
    a 0,1,2 value because 48bits isnt enough, it may get more forms beyond
    that.

    Might be worth defining ADDR_LBA48, ADDR_LBA28 etc to make it clearer,
    but really people shouldnt be randomly hacking IDE code without having
    read the specifications.
