    Subject[PATCH 2.6][TRIVIAL] Update ide.txt documentation to current ide.c
    Hi,

    this patches updates Documentation/ide.txt to reflect more options that
    really are supported by the IDE driver (drivers/ide.c)

    The patch despite the dirnames is versus 2.6.0-test3-bk8.

    Please review and luckily apply.
    Regards,
    Maciej
