I do not think it should have relied on it in any way or otherwise

even recently some breakage happened as a result of some fiddling with
include/asm-mips/mach-generic/ide.h and the fact this platform is
legacy-free -- there is nothing decoding subtractively on the PCI bus (no
south bridge of any kind) and blind pokes at presumed ISA addresses result
in bus error exceptions.
I'll have a look at it in due course.
