Thanks for applying this.
Actually, though; would you consider simply building in pata_macio on
powerpc? Booting a desktop CD in qemu runs into
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=641210, and it looks as
though the Debian kernel maintainers felt that building the module in
was the simplest way around the lack of autoloading in this case.
Having read the description in that bug it does seem that these devices
can be connected to PCI (discoverable) and some MACIO platform driver
(non-discoverable). Pretty much the only way to support those MACIO
connected versions is to build this driver in; vile though that is.
I have pushed a further update to precise switching this to =y.
works for me.
