FILO dependencies

I'm using FILO 0.4.2 and have PCI_BRUTE_SCAN=1.  
I found it to be too brute, so I changed it to only scan buses 0,1,2. No need to scan 256 buses.

FILO finds the IDE controller, but the IDE_BASE0 and IDE_BASE1 in FILO's ide.c point to the wrong place.  These are PCI addresses?  Does FILO assume 8111's PCI addresses for it's IDE?

You should be using 0.4.2 and be sure to set

You probably end up with filo not looking at anything but bus 0.
Common problem on amd64 boards.
