/*

unsigned long flags;
__save_flags(flags); /* local CPU only */
__cli(); /* local CPU only; some systems need this */
do_identify(drive, cmd); /* drive returned ID */

return rc;
}

If you get_stat returns a bad status we do not go into the test loop.

/*
* probe_for_drive() tests for existence of a given drive using do_probe().
*
* Returns: 0 no device was found
* 1 device was found (note: drive->present might still be 0)
*/
static inline byte probe_for_drive (ide_drive_t *drive)

This calls out for the poke in the ribbon, and if it fail anywhere we
never get to the top function for the kmallocs.

Does that help?

This is potentially valid for modules but if it built in and you are out
of memory before partition checking....go buy some memory. Also if you
are adding devices with a system under hard load eating/using memory to
that scale, you will have other issues to go KABOOM.

Will look at it for verification and run a gedanken process and get back
about it.
