+ <braunr> youpi: concerning the ide compatibility problem, it seems some
+ bioses provide several modes
+ <braunr> youpi: "legacy ide" and "native ide"
+ <braunr> i don't know what native ide really means, but when debugging ide
+ probing in gnumach, it just looks like there is nothing to detect
+ <braunr> and even in this mode, linux uses the ahci driver
+ <youpi> apparently native means it still uses the IDE protocol, but
+ possibly with other IRQs
+ <youpi> i.e. you need a PCI driver to handle that
+ <braunr> ok
