I've been puzzled. I've got a tape drive (OnStream) on ide1 which
detected but 'disappears' by the time the boot is finished (i.e. it's not
listed in /proc/devices). Here's an except from dmesg:

PIIX3: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 39

I'm running 2.2.13 with Gadi Oxman's 1.16e ide-tape.c. I've tried both as
