        Jeff: Sorry, I forgot to include diffs for include/linux/ide.h
and drivers/pci/pci.c. Here is a corrected patch. I am running the
code on that machine on which I'm composing this email, and I have
also verified that cmd640.c compiled without complaint (well,
actually, I've modified the patch slightly to eliminate some unrelated
