SubjectLinux 2.4.21pre5-ac2
This has significant IDE changes. A lot of the reset handling
has been rewritten and fixup for various locking, logic and PCI
handling bugs. The ALi driver has acquired support for the
newest chips, a couple of bug fixes and ATA133, thanks to ALi

Please treat -ac2 with a lot of care. It should be fine but it
does play deep in the IDE code.

Linux 2.4.21pre5-ac2
o Add PCI idents for ALi 1563 to dmfe (Clear Zhang)
o Busproc operations now error if unsupported (me)
o Make busproc handler return a status
o Fix IDE reset locking. We don't want an IRQ (me)
poking around during a reset while the iface
state is undefined
o Remove half baked request clean up code (me)
from ide_do_reset. We require the caller
cleans up first
o Add ide_abort functions to abort due to (me)
host not target triggered events
o Remove a pile of surplus hwgroup checks (me)
o Fix the reset ioctl paths to use (me)
o Fix PCI posting on ide resets (me)
o Call the dma_check routine when trying to (me)
enable DMA via hdparm
o Add per driver abort handlers and use them (me)
