I just read Documents/ide.txt.  It looks like you can tell the kernel where
to find an IDE drive by providing a command line argument
"hdx=cyl,head,sect".  If this is true, I don't see why I would need to write
any kernel code (provided that I design my FPGA local bus IDE host adapter
so that it conforms to the standard).
