None Hmmm, I think this is an IDE driver bug

I guess I've never tried an ATA/IDE card with PCI interrupts before.

It appears that the IDE probe routine has a bug that makes it unusable
when a drive shares an interrupt with another device.  Try setting:

  PCIC_OPTS="irq_mode=0 pci_csc=0 poll_interval=100"

which will prevent the i82365 driver from sharing the interrupt.  In
your system, the Ricoh bridge is set up for irq's 9 and 11.  If those
irq's are already shared with other devices, you will still have
problems; but if one or both are free (nothing shows up in
/proc/interrupts), then one or both of your sockets should be ok with
this updated PCIC_OPTS.
