ide: remove broken disk byte-swapping support

Remove broken disk byte-swapping support:
- it can cause a data corruption on SMP (or if using PREEMPT on UP)
- all data coming from disk are byte-swapped by taskfile_*_data() which
  results in incorrect identify data being reported by /proc/ide/ and IOCTLs
- "hdx=bswap/byteswap" kernel parameter has been broken on m68k host drivers
  (including Atari/Q40 ones) since 2.5.x days (because of 'hwif' zero-ing)
- byte-swapping is limited to PIO transfers (for working with TiVo disks on
  x86 machines using user-space solutions or dm-byteswap should result in
  much better performance because DMA can be used)

[ I have dm-byteswap device mapper target if somebody is interested
  (patch is for 2.6.4 though but I'll dust it off if needed). ]
