Thanks but have it solved now, following a post on the kernel mailing
You need to do two things.
a) Create a kernel in which CONFIG_IDE_GENERIC is set to be built in,
NOT A MODULE
b) boot the kernel with all-generic-ide as a boot parameter.
When I was trying it before, CONFIG_IDE_GENERIC was set to create a
module and this didn't work
