Did you try disabling generic IDE support in the kernel configuration? Check http://ck.kolivas.org/audio_hints.txt .

I just tried that, and as a result my cd/dvd isn't recognized at
startup; without generic IDE support, I get no IDE at all.  Dmesg has
no mention of hda being recognized.

After rebooting into my normal kernel, I just ran dmesg |grep IDE and got: Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2

So perhaps i'm not using via82cxxx and am instead using the generic
IDE driver?

It seems so. If you're not using initrd, you might want to compile in
the via82cxxx driver (i.e., not as a module), otherwise the kernel can't
read it from the disk. That works great here :)

Just remember to recompile your kernel with IDE generic support (or,
alternatively, use initrd to load the IDE modules) if, in the future,
you change to a non-VIA IDE controller.
