ATAPI is merely SCSI commands (well, a significant subset) over the IDE

its as real a SCSI system as etherSCSI or firewire. it just coexists
with another protocol on the same wire.

and compiling ide-scsi as a module DOES work. I have done it for every
kerenel I ever used (starting way back in 2.2 for X86 and 2.0 on ARM).
