At the very least the IDE legacy port access must be enabled to be
able to use FILO. The rest is optional, but I see no reason to not
enable it per default.
should this maybe be a cmos option instead? Some old drives (being
present in old machines) might not work with the setting.
On the long run, yes. IMO we should automatically "extract" a CMOS
option out of these config variables. All of them make run-time
decisions in the code already -> perfect for CMOS options.
For now I'd like to commit as is, there's no CMOS support on 440BX
boards anyway at the moment, and ide_legacy_enable = 1 is really needed
to be able to use FILO.
