I upgraded from 2.6.9-rc3-mm3 to 2.6.9-mm1 and the system coould not boot.
What was before hde now was hda (guess ? root is on hde1...)

Thi system has a promise controller and the internal via one:

The PDC at 0c.0 is detected before the VIA. Last 2.6.9-mm1 skips the
activation of the ide channels if bios disables it (there's no drive connected).
The new pdc driver has an option to control this behavior, but the old one
does not. dmesg diff:

How can I restore the old behaviour ? Plain 2.6.9 booted. So reconfiguring
fstab to say / == hda1 will make impossible switch between kernels ...
Better, can I force ide0=via, for any kernel I boot ?

Any idea ?

TIA
