We use pata as the default, because in the future, there will be no ide
anymore (althought that may take another year or two).

However, pata_sis is still experimental and I use the ide driver on my
desktop for stability reasons. Some older Intel chipsets had problems in
earlier versions, but I think those should all be fine now in 2.6.23.

The rule is: If there are strange messages during the boot process with
pata or access seems slow, use ide. Otherwise, use pata.
