    Thanks, good work! That means we should move forward with submitting
    Miklos' patch to the ide subsystem maintainer asap.

    Also if someone feels like it we still could do the 2 follow up / clean
    up patches:

    1) Removin the set_drvdata call from hwif_register_devices()
    in ide-prove.c
    2) Fixup ide-generic.c ide_remove to not dereference a NULL dev->driver
