This has never been the claim. The issue is that the real driver needs to 
be loaded but that devices will not become visible until after 
ide-generic is also loaded.
So the statement "the ide-generic being loaded _before them_" is incorrect 
and also does not correspond to what happens in yaird (or 
initramfs-tools): ide-generic is always loaded last.
