ide: officially deprecated the legacy IDE driver
After a recent chat with Dave we agreed to try to finally kill off the legacy IDE code base. Set a two year grace period in which we try to move everyone over. There are a few pieces of hardware not supported by libata yet, but for many of them we aren't even sure if there are any users. For those that have users we have usually found a volunteer to add libata support. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Acked-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: David S.
