Yes, I already prepared a version of the driver in which IDE register
addresses are coded as enums instead of using ata_port->ioaddr structure. 
I will post updated version, when I get feedback from Ryan if enums
or defines are preferred.

EP93xx IDE controller is quite unusual - in PIO mode it's a GPIO like pin
interface.

Fixed.

I selected "PATA SFF controllers with BMDMA" list because the driver
inherits .ata_bmdma_port_ops (this is in libata-sff.c, which is compiled
only if ATA_SFF is set).

Thanks for comments.
