RedHat comes with only the first 4 device device nodes for each pd
device. Read and run the
script to make the device nodes. It will complain about the ones
that already exist - but that's harmless.

Read the same page :-) The PARIDE drivers only detect the _first_
device automatically. You have to use the drive0 and drive1 parameters
if you want to use two devices.

No patches required so far, everything is working as documented.
