Yes, I went through this also awhile back.  All your drivers should now 
come from the Sata section, both the Sata drivers for your hard drives, 
plus the Pata drivers for any Pata DVD drives you may have.  There are 
now Pata support drivers living in the Sata section.  You should turn 
off the toggle for the entire old Pata driver section in menuconfig. 
If you have only Pata drives, you should just use the Pata drivers from 
the Sata section by themselves.  No need for anything in the old Pata 
section in any case anymore.

The newer Sata subsystem Pata drivers had been included before in the 
kernel for a long time as deprecated drivers for people to beta test, 
and the regular Pata drivers were recommended for use.  Now it's 
reversed -- the Pata drivers in the Sata section are recommended, and 
the old Pata drivers from the Pata section are deprecated...expecially 
because they don't work anymore with current versions of udev!
