The via 686 can't go on a standalone pci card, as it's a complete

Which tree are those boards in?

There's a similar fixup in pplus.c in 2.6.7, but I don't like the way
IDE works on PowerPC currently. The ppc_ide_md structure and the fixups
are being used to fool the core ide code into behaving in a specific
way. The core ide code makes no guarantees that these tricks will
continue to work, and in my case the necessary tricks changed between
2.4 and 2.6. The only platform specific knowledge required for the Via
686 is the mapping between the internal i8259 interrupt number and the
linux interrupt number.
