For 2.6.19 to move the libata drivers to drivers/ata
Add a subset of the new PATA drivers living in -mm to the base kernel

Is it planned for the pata_pdc2027x driver to be included in the
subset of upstream PATA drivers? It would be nice to have the driver
for the adapter hotplug on ppc64.

Yes. That driver will go along with all the other PATA drivers in the #pata-drivers branch.
