We have decided to move to a newer kernel (2.4.20 or greater).
As a simple check, would you please give me a list of files with the
CONFIG_IDE_EXT_DIRECT #ifdef so I can get a bit of assurance that I have
the support in the kernel before making the move.

Hmm. I'd say it started somewhen at 2.4.20.

I don't know how much changes you did. But I strongly recommend moving
to something newer! Otherwise you only get this advice later if you
run into some other problem and try to get help on the mailing list!
