There are slight differences between the ide code from my etherboot patch
(i believe this is where takeshi took the polled ide code from) and the
polled ide code in etherboot development branches. If you're having
trouble with one, it may be worth trying the other. Takeshi really did a
fine job with Filo and I'd like to see if replace my etherboot patch for
its admitted hackishness alone :)
