try loading first ide_core, then via82cxxx and after that ide_generic.

I would guess this is the problem: ide_generic is always added
to /etc/modules by debian-installer.

If you boot from scsi or sata or any non-IDE device, then
ide_generic is loaded first to manage all IDE disks and cdroms
without supporting DMA. Loading via82cxxx later doesn't help.

The only clean solution is to open a bug report against
debian-installer to get a fix this, and to remove ide_generic
from /etc/modules.

Or (if you are more carefull) add a line "via82cxxx" to
/etc/modules above of ide_generic.
