I've found that if you take the latest edgy kernel (2.6.17.11) and compile in the ide-generic module, the all-generic-ide kernel boot parameter can be used and JMB363 PATA devices are detected. I played with a number of kernels and kernel configs before I figured this out. I'm not sure what is going on here, but it seems like ide-generic can't pick up the PATA drives unless it is initialized before the other disk controller modules. There is a comment about similar behavior in the 2.6.18 <a href="http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=15e0c694367332d7e7114c7c73044bc5fed9ee48">changelog</a>, but I think this is a different problem because vanilla 2.6.18-rc6 with ide-generic compiled as a module doesn't work for me.
