Commodore was hugely into XT-IDE at one point - look inside some of
the Colt models (their line of Intel boxes), or the Amiga A590 disk
sidecar or the A2091 SCSI controller... the 40-pin connector is _XT
I've also seen XT-IDE drives on some of the later-model 8-bit HardCards.

I don't know about adapter manufacturers for certain, but since
Western Digital (as well as Seagate) made the drives, I'd expect to
see a WD XT IDE controller at some point.
