Subjectide-floppy & devfs - /dev entry not created if drive is empty
Hallo Paul Bristow,

I have tested ide-floppy on my Linux 2.4.19 with ATAPI ZIP 100. I am
using devfs.

I found following problem:

If module ide-floppy is loaded and no disc is present in the drive,
/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/disc entry is not created. Later
inserted media cannot be checked in any way, because no /dev entry

Older kernels have also this behavior.

Fix: Create .../disc entry in all cases, even if no disc is present.
