hw/ide/pci.h is just as internal as internal.h is. And even if you
managed to access the same things without any IDE header file, I still
think it's not the right level of abstraction because it relies on the
implementation details of IDE.

Just this line: pci_ide->bus[di->bus].ifs[di->unit].bs = NULL; Does this
really look right to you to do anywhere outside IDE?

I'm basically looking for the same as Michael who wanted to have network
unplug handled through qdev, just that the IDE code doesn't support
unplug yet.
