CONFIG_BLK_DEV_4DRIVES deserves its own host driver:

* Add drivers/ide/legacy/ide-4drives.c and move "4drives" support there.

* Add ide-4drives.o in the link order after all other legacy host
  drivers enabled by "ide0=" options (they all are mutually exclusive).

* Make ide-4drives host driver probe itself for IDE devices instead of
  indirectly depending on ide_generic host driver.

* Add "probe" module parameter to ide-4drives and update documentation.

          Certain older chipsets, including the Tekram 690CD, use a single set
          of I/O ports at 0x1f0 to control up to four drives, instead of the
          customary two drives per port. Support for this can be enabled at
