That is consistent with what I proposed both on linux-kernel/scsi and in my 
bugzilla entry. But as ide-scsi is not compiled, that logic is moot...

[root fallguy root]# grep BLK_DEV_IDESCSI /usr/src/l*/configs/*
/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.327/configs/kernel-2.6.5-i586.config:# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI is not set

/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.327/configs/kernel-2.6.5-i686-smp.config:# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI is not set
