    Exactly, all the important information is available through other sources
    (dmesg, lspci and of course /proc/ide/hd?/*) and configuration of timing
    registers etc. shouldn't be of user concern (and it is available from PCI
    configuration space so code to parse it can be easily moved to user-space).
