Something is very wrong if they initialize twice. Hacking chipset_init
is not a fix its an ugly hack.

They should end up on the ide queue to init, then transfer to the core
PCI hotplug layer. The hotplug layer won't call the setups again because
the device is already owned by the driver that grabbed it.

In 2.4 at least pci_register_driver checks that it doesnt do that

    pci_for_each_dev(dev) {
                if (!pci_dev_driver(dev))
                        count += pci_announce_device(drv, dev);

2.5 should do the same
