2.6.25 indeed still needs 141-ide.diff.

2.6.26-rc8 doesn't need it anymore, at least not on ARAnyM.
It would be nice if you could try 2.6.26-rc8 on real hardware, as I use
ARAnyM for most testing these days, except for the casual boot on real
Amiga hardware.

atari_defconfig would be a good one to try, followed by multi_defconfig,
or (for the brave) multi_defconfig modified to have all drivers
