Could it be that Region 1 of the Promise controller contains

and a driver for it's PATA side, I don't know.

Nope, the PATA ports are stuck in the same place as the SATA ports...


Then the solution could be be that drivers/ide/ide.c generic
functions must be bridged/duplicated (short term) or moved (long term)
to libata. And maybe in 2.7 drivers/ide ll drivers are rewritten
(again) to use it from there.
