Recall his comments during the clean up stages of where he had studied
many other OS's ATA/ATAPI sub systems. This clearly indicates one has or
is presenting themselves withe a deep understanding if the issues. One
should recall the comments of comparing "taskfile" to MS Windows API.
Since he has clearly pointed out the useless nature of the IOCTL and
removed it in 2.5, he must have a better means of diagnotsics and testing
than the rest of the industry. So I am waiting on pins and needles for
this evolution to reveal itself.

Point taken and agreed, so as long has Mr. Dalecki will agree to a point
of peace, we can move forward. Obviously there is much about the top
layer interface to the kernel that is not significant to me at this point,
and he has a stronger grasp than I have an interest. However the mockery
of my knowledge of the physical/host transport is not acceptable. I am
perfectly will and agreeable to grant and give him the respect deserved,
but I also expect and require the same.
