Parallel ATA drivers

I think one of the best things about this is retirement of "ide" as a misnomer for ATA (PATA) devices, at least in one place.

For those not familiar with the naming mixup: "IDE" is a technology that is used in all modern disk drives, including SCSI. The first IDE drives used the protocol called ATA (now sometimes PATA), and the names got mixed up.
