I think I was misunderstood.

Have you reviewed the PCI IDE specification?

On modern chipsets, the IDE device appears in PCI -- but often, the first
four I/O ports will be zeroed out, indicating that the I/O regions are
actually 0x1f0/0x170.

For example:

00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) IDE Controller
(rev 02) (prog-if 8a [Master SecP PriP])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company d530 CMT (DG746A)
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Step
ping- SERR- FastB2B-
Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort
- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 0
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 169
Region 0: I/O ports at <ignored>
Region 1: I/O ports at <ignored>
Region 2: I/O ports at <ignored>
Region 3: I/O ports at <ignored>
Region 4: I/O ports at 14c0 [size=16]
Region 5: Memory at 40000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1K]

Trust me, IDE on PCI is still quite weird.
