Basic driver model support for IDE is in 2.5.38. This just involves 
creating an IDE bus type, and registering drives as devices. I.e. there is 
no driver set for any of the drives. 

I do have a couple of comments though.

You don't need to initialize .lock. But, you do need a .name and .bus. The 
driver won't even be registered unless .bus is set.

There is a struct device in struct gendisk; that should suffice. But note 
that you may have to do an extra conversion in order to access it in the 
driver callbacks.

Please: it's driver model support, not driverfs. And devicefs does not 
even exist. :)
