Well, many hours and printk's later,

  hda: 251350AT Maxtor 2.5" Disk Drive (C) 199, 1287MB w/58kB Cache,

I haven't tried formatting it yet, but I managed to write some
raw data on /dev/hda from a Linux program, then read it back in
EPPCBug.  Looks funny, every other 2bytes are 00's, but perhaps
that's expected for doing a blind write() on /dev/hda.

m8xx_setup.c doesn't seem to want both IDE and PCMCIA ATA devices
to exist at the same time, though.  Not sure what to do about that,
but first I have to study interrupts and PCI/ISA busses some
more (I'm a bit rusty on that subject matter).  If I can hack
them to both work at the same time for my own purposes, I'll
be happy.
