remove ide-scsi



As planed, this removes ide-scsi.

The 2.6 kernel supports direct writing to ide CD drives, which
eliminates the need for ide-scsi. ide-scsi has been unmaintained and
marked as deprecated.

WARNING: ide-scsi is no longer needed for cd writing applications!
The 2.6 kernel supports direct writing to ide-cd, which eliminates
the need for ide-scsi + the entire scsi stack just for writing a
cd. The new method is more efficient in every way.
This will provide SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices,
and will allow you to use a SCSI device driver instead of a native
ATAPI driver.
If both this SCSI emulation and native ATAPI support are compiled
into the kernel, the native support will be used.
