NACK duplicating the bus information on the <disk> is just
not very pleasant. Applications should really be adding
<controllers> explicitly - the auto-add of controllers is
just to provide back-compat for applications that were
written to add IDE disks before the <controller> concept
was introduced. New apps should not rely on this.
