I looked at this last time you reported it. Which compiler are you

Line 440 of ide-cd.h is:

        __u8 short slot_tablelen;

'short' doesn't make any sense there. __u8 is unsigned char.
I can't figure out why you're the only one getting an error. That
change went in a few kernels ago and I've compiled ide-cd in every one
of them and it compiles fine for me.
