    I've altered your patch to do the spin_lock_irqsave in down_read.
    I am very ignorant and stupid. That's why I am doing it without
    thinking why or why not de irqsave is ok in that region or not.

    And the results are:
    include/asm-i386/ide.h ide_default_io_base(): blaat: interrupts were disabled@49
    include/asm-i386/ide.h ide_default_io_base(): blaat: interrupts were disabled@51
    include/asm-i386/ide.h ide_default_io_base(): blaat: interrupts were disabled@59

    Meaning: it works.

    Repeating: I am very stupid, so I don't know if saving the irq state is ok or
    not in down_read.
