[PATCH] nforce2 dma enabled

I just got a new toy an epox EP-8RDA. Since there is an nforce2 chipset
onboard and only support for the nforce (whithout 2) in the 2.4.20-ac2
kernel. I just concluded that the new ide driver should be pretty
similar to the old one. i had absolutly no documentation! so be
careful! Personally i did an full backup *before* fiddling with the ide
driver :)

The patch just adds the pci id of the nforce ide controller and added a
new information block to the ide_pci_device_t structure. Also i added an
entry to pci_device_id.

This is my first public patch so suggestions or other feedback is very
welcome. I would also like to know why the lspci command still tells me
this is an unknown device after applying my patch seen below. Also if
someone has a hint why the usb-devices have no interrupt assigned and
thus are not available is very welcome (probably disable acpi?).

However currently i am runing with following settings enabled (by hand):
 multcount = 16 (on)
 IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
 unmaskirq = 1 (on)
 using_dma = 1 (on)
 keepsettings = 1 (on)
 readonly = 0 (off)
 readahead = 8 (on)
 geometry = 15505/240/63, sectors = 234441648, start = 0

Have fun
