Subject[PATCH] IDE flush on reboot notify
Andre, Alan, Linus,

This patch registers a reboot notifier for IDE devices, forcing a cache
flush before reboot/poweroff. Without it, we've experienced disk
corruption (verified by Seagate, I believe).

Please apply for the next 2.4.x, or let me know of any problems.

thanks!

Tim
