At the end of pmac_ide_setup_device(), after probe_hwif_init() (and
after the test for !present) you have the fully probed hwif which should
contain a device structure you can attach to, though it's not clear how
to hook a cleanup function... but then, you probably don't need one
neither, modularity isn't quite supported on ide pmac. Avoid attaching
anything to the mediabay tho, that will cause more problems as the media
bay is sort-of hotplug.

Ok, well, I may do my own changes, depends on how much time I can spare.
