SubjectPATCH: linux-2.4.9/drivers/atm to new module_{init,exit} + some pci_device_id tables
	The following patch moves linux-2.4.9/drivers/atm
to the relatively new module_{init,exit} interface, simplifying
the code and removing the reference to the ATM drivers from
linux/drivers/genhd.c (this is partly motivated by my effort to get
rid of genhd.c). The changes also include some pci_device_id tables,
which enable automatic loading of the modules via pcimodules (or
a similar program). These changes are also all steps toward porting
the atm drivers to the new PCI interface. In the case zatm.c, I
have actually ported it to the new PCI interface, although it
shares the stock zatm driver's deficiency of not supporting
module removal.

Note that this change deletes linux-2.4.9/drivers/atmdev_init.c,
since the conversion to module_{init,exit} completely obseletes that file.

If these changes look OK, I would like to get them
into the stock kernel. If there is a maintainer on linux-atm-general
who shepherds these patches to Alan and Linus, and if these changes
are good, please let me know if you are going to "officially" send them
to Alan and Linus or if you want me to do so or if there is some other
procedure that I should follow.
