I believe Alan has stated that official policy is that there will
be no avalanche backports from 2.4; after all, there's a reason that 
2.2 is officially obsolete, and 2.4 is the official stable kernel.

2.2 stopped getting IDE updates some time ago; as I recall, it has 
no VIA-specific code, which means that the driver will use UDMA
only if the BIOS configures it.  so for 2.2, if the BIOS does the right
things, it should all just work.
