I am mainly saying that your commit message is misleading.

CONFIG_IDE_CORE is not the only reason that pci.mak needs
CONFIG_ISA_BUS=y, as you make it sound. The other problem is that we
don't have Kconfig yet, so we have no way of modeling that I82378
depends on ISA_BUS, therefore either pci.mak (as done here) or
ppc-softmmu.mak and ppc64-softmmu.mak need CONFIG_ISA_BUS=y. And due to
the qtest either sh4/sh4eb need that same dependency too, or the test
needs to be changed.

So please either revise the commit message when you resend, or you'll
need to repeat CONFIG_ISA_BUS=y for ppc, ppc64, sh4, sh4eb.
