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
