This is not a bug - you should read the release notes.

o New IDE drivers that use the same libata code as the SATA drivers.

[177][Important] IDE Device Names Changed
           The new IDE drivers now cause all IDE drives to have
           device names such as /dev/sdX instead of /dev/hdX.

           If the /etc/fstab or /etc/crypttab files reference
           these devices by name, they must be migrated before
           the system can access those partitions.
