The standard policy, in place since you began, has been to push core
stuff into #upstream, and the driver side into #pata-drivers.

That way core changes aren't hidden away in #pata-drivers, and new
PATA-related code is always compiled -- just like it will be, when the
PATA drivers are in mainline.
