    SubjectRe: [PATCH] 2.5.5 IDE cleanup 11
    > This is the next round of IDE driver cleanups.

    How about fixing the stuff you've already messed up (like putting the
    drive present flags and the probe return back) ? The changes you made
    to the init code also broke the framework so that 2.5 would eventually
    let you do

    open("/dev/sda") /* Same device */
    burn a cd

    without loading/unloading modules

    I'm also confused how you plan to fix the hot swap case after your changes
    because you've not allowed for the fact drives might be hot swapped while
    you are suspended. The old code was careful to keep the hooks for that

    Finally you forgot to update the MAINTAINER entry since you've now clearly
    decided to walk over Andre and become the IDE maintainer
