There's no problem about enabling both cmd646 and ide-pmac with the
current vger sources, is there?  You do need to select experimental
drivers as well as "Generic PCI IDE chipset support"
(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI) and "Generic PCI bus-master DMA support"
(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA) before you get asked about the CMD646, though.
