That config option went away upstream about 9 months ago.
You can now configure this per-drive on the boot command line like so..

hdb=stroke

Are you sure ? With my kernel 2.6.5-1.358, this option on command line results in 'BAD OPTION' message from kernel. I checked 'kernel parameters.txt', 'ide.txt' under kernel documentation, where it is not mentioned. What is mentioned is 'hdx=C,H,S', but that option will be overridden by successful probing of the device by kernel.
