 After compiling kernel-2.4.22 from Sid, I was also suprised by this
panic, because kernel was compiled almost with the same config as
2.4.20. You have several options here: 
1st: you may compile ide-module in kernel
2nd: As I am trying to keep everything in modules, you also may compile
that option as module, but then you need to add "ide-detect" line to
/etc/mkinitrd/modules and re-run mkinitrd command to recreate
/boot/initrd.img-2.4.22 or reinstall kernel.

PS: why it doesn't load  it automagically? kernel 2.4.20 did it, without 
need to explicitly insmod it.
