Looks fine.  But if you're going to add ataid to ata_channel_s you can
probably also avoid any changes to CSM-mode behavior too.  I had shied
away from adding a member to ata_channel_s because it was already nicely
packed (a multiple of 4 bytes).

Also changing the bootorder names is a user-visible change, one we should
change, but it's a change none the less, so maybe changing the descriptions
isn't such a bad thing.  But maybe changing the descriptions should be in a
different changeset if we do decide to do it.
