I'm reworking the pci device list logic (we currently keep all PCI

The only bother I've found so far is the pci_get_device_reverse()
function, it's used in 2 places, IDE and the calgary driver.
I'm curious if we really still support the ide=reverse option? It's a
config option that I don't think the distros still enable (SuSE does
not). Is this still needed these days?
In digging, we changed this option in 2.2.x from being called
"pci=reverse" and no one else seems to miss it.
While details escape me somewhat again at the monment, a few months ago I
was playing around with a PCI Promise IDE controller and needed ide=reverse
to save me from having to switch disks around to still have a bootable system.
Or some such. Not too clear anymore, but I remember it saved the day.
