    I could finally enable DMA, only if I do it at run time :
    - enable "Generic PCI bus master DMA support"
    - disable "Use PCI DMA by default when available"
    - hdparm -d 1 /dev/every_disk

    I realized that a "idex=nodma" option is really lacking here. Shouldn't we
    disable IDE by default on Alpha at the moment, so that it at least boots ?
    The adventurous could always use hdparm to enable it again (it survived my
    39 GB save/restore).
