  ide is compiled in (not a module), via82cxxx is a module.

  via82cxxx is never loaded - what do I need to do to actually use this
module? Most other modules are loaded either automatically or an alias
is needed, however I have no idea what to do to make kernel use
via82cxxx (would ide module use it?). I thought that as long as I
configure it in kernel make xconfig as a module it will be used, but
it's not loaded (so I guess it's not used).

  I suspect that it might be the reason why my cd drive does not rip
audio cds...
