    This one fixes lockup, but I'm not actually sure that it is better
    than before, as both channels are downgraded to the PIO:

    ... CRC error stuff ...
    PDC202XX: Secondary channel reset
    PDC202XX: Primary channel reset
    ide3: reset: master: error (0x00?)
    ... USB stuff & so on, before mounting root ...
    ... repeat 4 times:
    hde: dma_timer_expiry: dma status = 0x21
    hde: timeout waiting for DMA
    PDC202XX: Primary channel reset
    PDC202XX: Secondary channel reset
    hde: timeout waiting for DMA
    ... end of repeat
    VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
    Freeing unused kernel memory: 292k freed

    It looks like that hde resurrecting did not cause any damage to the
    filesystems (and obviously hde is completely innocent udma100 citizen;
    hdg is the only one which should be turned to udma2 or pio).

    And strange thing, once I was lucky enough to read partition table from
    hdg, so I could run atapci, and it reports that hde host interface is setup
    for UDMA4, while hdg for UDMA2. So host hardware is actually probably set
    ok, it is just "hdg: 234441648 sectors (120034 MB) w/2048KiB Cache,
    CHS=232581/16/63, UDMA(100)" which contains wrong value, and hdg itself,
    which says that udma5 is selected (and does not work).
