Right, this is as stated in the EPIA-M-howto. I applied the patch per
the howto for the second flash and it probably works, but I fried my
CF and haven't picked up a new one yet. (The MII CF socket requires
some force to insert the CF, and required less force to insert the CF
upside down.)

How about those IO ports though? Apparently they're offset some ports
from normal ide4 and hence Linux needs to be told ide4=noprobe to not
hang, according to same howto. If still true, it's not very neat -
can I do something to improve it?
