for IDE Emulation you can use pata_pcmcia.c (now preferred instead of
ide_cs.c) indeed.

memory_cs.c has unfortunately been broken for ages. Nonetheless, fixing and
then re-using memory_cs.c (or re-writing something similarily generic) would
be the right thing, instead of implementing a special CF flash access

Thanks and best wishes,
