There is only a single driver (sgi_ide) which hasn't been moved over to
libata. But this is for an old Itanium-based server only, and even SGI
didn't press us to have this ported.
(And we have disabled the IDE drivers since SLES11, where we still
support Itanium.)
So they can be safely assumed defunct at this time.

I'm all for removing them.
