Q1) Under 1.2.10 whan I cat /proc/ioports I see all the i/o ports used by my
hardware except the floppy disk drive. Why is that so?

Q2) Apparently there are standard addresses for 3rd & 4th IDE channels at
168 and 1e8. Should another two major device numbers be added to support 4
or do you feel four IDE devices is enough?
