    As noted, it's both PATA and SATA. People searching for PATA-only PIIX
    support may have trouble locating it under SATA.

    Why not remove ATA SFF support visual option (or leave it for optional
    off-tree drivers only, if it makes sense) and SELECT it when any
    driver using it is selected? I'm not sure that users know they need
    SFF, or what's that.

    I think I would also ask for PATA and for SATA first:

    [*] PATA support
    [*] SATA support
    ... PATA drivers if "PATA support" is selected
    ... SATA drivers if "SATA support" is selected
    ... PIIX is PATA and/or SATA support is selected

    I guess all PATA and/or SATA drivers in a single sorted list (so PIIX
    doesn't break ordering).
