Subject: [GIT]: IDE

The revert we thought we didn't need, we really do need still, even
with Bart Z.'s fix.

The issue is that we are doing these PIO setting calls before we did
the device probe and therefore we don't yet know the media type.

Yet the ->set_pio_mode() of some drivers key off of the media type to
determine whether to turn prefetching etc. on so it can't possibly
work properly.

Please pull, thanks!
