Strange behavior since commit 5fef0e5c

In testing kernel version 2.6.28-rc4 on my server that was running kernel
2.6.27, an external IDE disk system connected via a PCCard interface failed to
start because module ide_disk would not load. The console output is as follows:
finger at sonylap:~> sudo modprobe -v ide-disk
WARNING: module 'ide_gd_mod' is unsupported
FATAL: Module ide_disk not found.
I did not bisect this problem, but I believe that the following commit
introduced this change:

My work-around has been to change 'modprobe ide-disk' to 'modprobe ide-gd_mod'
in my startup. Please note that one of the underscores is changed to a hyphen.
