I would tend to prefer that ID patches go through the libata/IDE 
subsystem trees, to be similar to PCI and other bus ID patches.

But it is such a small matter that, if you have already applied the 
patch to your tree, I would rather not waste your time removing the patch!

If you have not yet applied it, though, I can merge it into my tree.
