Not so sure if it's ever used for something requiring performance, and
even if it isn't then it may still be worth it to keep the mapping and
instead fix the task setup to map in user data with blk_rq_map_user() by
fixing up ide_taskfile_ioctl().

It would make HDIO_DRIVE_TASKFILE a whole lot nicer.
