Hold on please. Becouse if you think one step further ->
not blocking blk_stop_queue() in do_request or more
precisely at places where the IDE_BUSY get's set 8-) you suddenly get
completely rid of it if you replace the "back-calls" to do_request() in
ata_irq_request() and ide_timer_expiry() with blk_start_queue()...
No direct manipulation whatsever.
