I can top that one. :-)

I had to _add_ some code to the (E)IDE driver to properly detect
EATA compliant (DPT et al.) SCSI controllers and drop them.....
They do a ATA interface emulation in hardware and an unsuspecting EIDE
driver would always detect them and start using them.

It would work fine for the first two drives.....but you couldn't access the
rest of the devices (besides loosing all of the other SCSI advantages).
