I've created a new IDE development tree at:

and the first patch is below.

I'll ask the patchwork folks to add an IDE group so we can manage
patches posted here.

I'm going to treat IDE as pure legacy, rather than as competition
with the PATA drivers which is what people whould be moving over to.

And more importantly I refuse to apply any driver patch that isn't
actually tested on said hardware.

ide: Take over as maintainer.
