    Lots of people are still using them. Removing the blacklists "because
    they are old disks" is not what I'd consider good practice.

    For the DMA blacklists thats not the case. You need to get more direct
    contacts with the IDE/ATA drive vendors and documentation sets. The WDC
    DMA blacklist entries for example are from specific WDC issued lists of
    problem drives.
