Bug#302988: IBM Thinkpad T43 hardware detection incomplete

So, loading ata_piix should be the Right Way for discover when finding
your SATA chipset but what you say it that this is not enough with the
D-I kernel, right ?

So, this problem is dual:

-discover needs to load the correct module : easy to fix in pci.lst

-the kernel module must properly handle your hardware : not easy to
 fix if this fails with the current 2.6.8-2 kernel we have in D-I

For everyone reading this : is this the correct conclusion?
