SubjectRe: [patch] ide.c as a module
Hi,

I tried with using only your suggested changes and removing the ide_probe
ptr, but due to (in include/asm-i386/ide.h) where CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI is
indeed undefined:

static __inline__ void ide_init_default_hwifs(void)
{
#ifndef CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI
hw_regs_t hw;
int index;
for(index = 0; index < MAX_HWIFS; index++) {
memset(&hw, 0, sizeof hw);
ide_init_hwif_ports(&hw, ide_default_io_base(index), 0, NULL);
hw.irq = ide_default_irq(ide_default_io_base(index));
ide_register_hw(&hw, NULL);
}
#endif /* CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI */
}
I get the following probing messages (I enabled a debug message which is why there are so
many messages):

Any ideas how to avoid this?
