Ok then, so we duplicate. This seems like the easiest solution. Sharing code
between libata and IDE is not that smart in case the two development directions
divert, as you said. Bart, here's v3:

Subject: [PATCH] ide-generic: handle probing of legacy io-ports v3
Avoid probing the io-ports in case an IDE PCI controller is present and it uses
the legacy iobases. If we still want to enforce the probing, we do

ide_generic.probe_mask=0x3f

on the kernel command line. The iobase checking code is adapted from
drivers/ata/pata_legacy.c
