Udev-149 removes /dev/hd* rules, the question is if we should add it as compat 
rules, i don't know how stable the ata subsystem is on .27 lts series.
Also we can think of removing the old ide subsystem from kernel .32 series and 
I think it can stay until it's removed from kernel anyway, any other opinions?
