Sorry, this doesn't work. Such change may be artificially delayed to the last 
moment before the release (as it was the case with ata_piix pretending to pick 
up support for intel IDE controllers but actually failing for laptop drives with 
a host-protected area). Nobody will test it, and the end result would be a 
faulty CD that, e.g., doesn't boot at all or doesn't see a hard disk for a large 
percentage of users.
