After looking at the driver history I think that the comment is about
ninja32_program() enabling interrupt lines (which don't get disabled when
the host controller is detached from the driver) not about the cleanup
done during ata_pci_remove_one().  Alan, is this correct?

Unless you have hardware to test such change (to check that there are no
side-effects) just moving FIXME to ninja32_program() seems to be a better
approach for now..

Please wait with this to give a chance for somebody more familiar with
pata_ninja32 driver/hardware to comment on it.  There is absolutely no need
to rush with this change..
