ide0=ata66 doesn't seem obsolete

On my laptop, idebus=66 or nothing gets me this:
hda: 78140160 sectors (40007 MB) w/1768KiB Cache, CHS=65535/16/63, UDMA(33)

In contrast, ide0=ata66 gets me this (never mind the geometry):
ide_setup: ide0=ata66 -- OBSOLETE OPTION, WILL BE REMOVED SOON!
hda: 78140160 sectors (40007 MB) w/1768KiB Cache, CHS=4864/255/63, UDMA(100)

What's not to like?
