    Now investigated: the hardware has not changed. Rather the corruption
    under 2.2.18 only happens when hdparm -d1 is executed. I guess that is
    well reported, but I had forgotten if I ever knew :-(

    In contrast 2.4.2 corruptions happen whether dma is explicitly turned on
    by hdparm or not.
