[PATCH] ide: revert "ide: fix drive side 80c cable check, take 2" for now

"ide: fix drive side 80c cable check, take 2" patch from Tejun Heo (commit
fab59375b9543f84d1714f7dd00f5d11e531bd3e) fixed 80c bit test (bit13 of word93)
but we also need to fix master/slave IDENTIFY order (slave device should be
probed first in order to make it release PDIAG- signal) and we should also
check for pre-ATA3 slave devices (which may not release PDIAG- signal).

Unfortunately the fact that IDE driver doesn't reset devices itself helps
only a bit as it seems that some BIOS-es reset ATA devices after programming
the chipset, some BIOS-es can be set to not probe/configure selected devices,
there may be no BIOS in case of add-on cards etc.

Since we are quite late in the release cycle and the required changes will
affect a lot of systems just revert the fix for now.
