yes that was the first hurdle; I've been able to override that with
`root=/dev/hdaX`, then it boots but as said with generic-IDE, not SATA.
BTW. I can boot the kernel without initrd. since /kernel-libre/ includes
most of the drivers rather than loading modules.. it could also be a bug
with `update-initramfs`'s module load/probe code..
I'll try "ide0=ata_piix" next reboot; looking at Documentation/ide.txt
and /etc/modutil/* options it probably does not stop there ;) anyway,
it's kind of silly that generic_ide is detected/used before ata.
