    This lets you throw out the iteraid stuff that has ended up back in due
    to stupid goings on in the IDE world. Its the same heavily tested code
    shipped in Fedora/Red Hat products but without the other dependancies on
    the Bartlomiej IDE layer.
    
    Pre-requisite: the ide-disk patch I sent to handle pure LBA devices.
    
    Obviously you lose things like hot unplug with the Bartlomiej IDE layer
    at the moment but that won't matter to most users.
    
    The patch does the following
    - Add IT8211/12 to pci_ids.h
    - Add Makefile/Kconfig entry
    - Add it8212 driver
    
    No core IDE code is touched by this diff
    
    Embedded system testing and the ability to force raid mode off by David
    Howells
    
    Made possible by the ite reference code, documentation and also several
    clarifications and pieces of assistance provided by ITE themselves
