That the data is copied. All command work on the internal s->io_buffer.
Once the command is completed, the response can be transferred to the
guest, either using DMA (see bmdma_rw_buf) or PIO (ide_data_readl).

I can't find any ATAPI command that calls ide_set_irq directly. Anyway,
the important thing is that s->io_buffer_size is set correctly.
