SubjectRe: [RFC/BUG?] ide_cs's removable status
From
Date
A proposed solution/patch:
[One step further is to totally remove the drive->removable = 1]

This patch stops CompactFlash devices being marked as removable. They
are not removable as the media and device are inseparable. When a card
is removed, the device is removed from the system.

Further, once this change is made, there is no need for ide to
differentiate between flash and other devices so the is_flash variable
can be removed from ide_drive_t.
