SubjectIDE0(Primary)/Slave Detection Problem
While looking through ide-probe.c I came across the following code:
* Prevent long system lockup probing later for non-existant
* slave drive if the hwif is actually a flash memory card of
some variety:
if (drive_is_flashcard(drive)) {
ide_drive_t *mate =
if (!mate->ata_flash) {
mate->present = 0;
mate->noprobe = 1;

In my case I am using a flash card with a normal harddrive as the slave,
this code does not allow for that combination. Their must be a better
way to
handle this, or it should at least print, "Flash Disk Detected, Ignoring
