The problem was I didn't know what I was doing.  Seems like you have to 
modprobe in ide-generic after the specific chipset driver in order to 
complete the initialization procedure.

Not sure if that's by design or accident.  I wrote a message to the 
debian-kernel list about it (and the ALSA patch).  Haven't got any responses 
back yet.

PS:  I do get data corruption on writting if I load the cmd64x driver before 
ide-generic.  I'm pretty sure it's because it enables the (buggy) DMA engine.

PPS:  Thanks for all the work you are doing to get the core-cia.c patch 
revoked!  I'm looking forward to having working Debian kernels again!
