This looks much better, thanks.

Please kill ioc4_ide_init as it's completely unused and make ioc4_serial_init
a normal module_init() handler in ioc4_serial, there's no need to call
them from the generic driver.

Also yo should need to implement ioc4_remove_one (yet) as the ide driver
can't be removed yet. It might make sense to keep it and
ioc4_serial_remove_one around #if 0'ed as that might be implemented soon.

Do you need to use ide_pci_register_driver? IOC4 doesn't have the legacy
IDE problems, and it's never used together with such devices in a system,
so a plain pci_register_driver should do it.

In ioc4_ide_attach_one you can kill the if and return pci_init_sgiioc4(..)

In ioc4.c please include <asm/sn/ioc4_common.h> after <linux/ide.h>.

Also ioc4_common.h should probably move to include/linux as ioc4 is more
or less just a pci device and not that SN-specific.

The ioc4_serial driver looks more or less good to me, but you seem to
miss __iomem annotation and there's a few things that it'd have cought,
like casting the return value from ioremap (it's a void __iomem * so it
can be assigned to any pointer directly (or any __iomem pointer in sparse).

ioc4_soft.is_intr_type[].is_intr_ents_free should be an unsigned long
so test_and_clear_bit can operate on it directly. But I fail to see where
we set bits in at all (?)

ioc4_serial_attach_one has various resource leaks when parts of the
initialization fail. Try to follow the goto-based cleanup model most pci
drivers use instead of returning directly on failures.
