yep the pata_sis case is known.

it is an unfortunate example of why we shouldn't use oldstyle device
names in fstab. it wasn't desactivated as currently pata_sis seems
to be quicker in grabbing the device thus many people have
/dev/sdaX as their root and bouncing around seemed stupid.
also the hope was put on the pata transition and stable dev usage.
as none of those currently happend it seems time to reconsider
(having testing user bite the sour switch again)
