    * Notes:
    * - I recently got a 16.8G IBM DTTA, so I was able to test it with
    * a large and fast disk - the results look great, so I'd say the
    * driver is working fine :-)
    * hdparm -t reports 8.17 MB/sec at about 6% CPU usage for the DTTA
    * - this is my first linux driver, so there's probably a lot of room
    * for optimizations and bug fixing, so feel free to do it.
    * - use idebus=xx parameter to set PCI bus speed - needed to calc
    * timings for PIO modes (default will be 40)
    * - if using PIO mode it's a good idea to set the PIO mode and
    * 32-bit I/O support (if possible), e.g. hdparm -p2 -c1 /dev/hda
    * - I had some problems with my IBM DHEA with PIO modes < 2
    * (lost interrupts) ?????
    * - first tests with DMA look okay, they seem to work, but there is a
    * problem with sound - the BusMaster IDE TimeOut should fixed this

    This is your fix....
