[PATCH] add sysfs support for ide tape

I was recently given an old Travan tape drive and asked to do something
useful with it.  The ide-scsi + st (+serverworks ide controller) combo
results in a hard lockup of the machine which I have not had the energy to
debug, so I turned to ide-tape (which seems to work).  The system in
question debian stable, using udev to manage /dev.

The following patch to ide-tape.c allows udev to create the cdev nodes for
my drive.
