Ok, there are two things here:

1) "hdx=flash" _does_ fail, because the flash-related code clobbers hda
_after_ hda's detection phase, when it's looking at hdb (which is flash).

2) I can see no situation where hdb detection should ever override the
_already_performed_ detection of hda in this way.

Basically, as is, the kernel finds hda (traditional IDE device), configures it
normally, then finds hdb (flash), and clobbers all the correct info it already
detected for hda. This seems just plain wrong.
