Just to throw this out there. Is it possible to make the ide subsystem look
like a scsi controller ? that way the scsi layer could insert/remove
devices. say: ide0/1 = scsi0 (assuming no other scsi controllers) and hda =
scsi0 channel0 id0 lun0 and hdc = scsi0 channel1 id0 lun0 ...

Personally, if it's doable, i'd like it.
