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
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!
