File a bug on this?

We know that it works on a great many debian systems, because every
debian system that boots with a debian initd loads every pci ide driver
on boot. I am not aware of any way to detect what ide driver is needed
except for loading them all and letting ide-probe do its job. I also
know that if you don't load some of them, some IDE devices will not be
visible at all, and some IDE devices (such as the one in my very common
laptop) will hang with DMA issues.

I think I'll not worry about this unless we get reports of it causing
problems, if it does we can disable whichever module causes the
hypothetical problem.
