    A change was made to ide-disk.c where it _always_ attempts to do
    a READ_NATIVE_MAX call regardless of whether the drive supports
    the host protected area feature set in the
    init_idedisk_capacity() function. I submitted a patch to address
    this, which is currently being reworked a bit in the 2.6 kernel
    tree and will then be backported again to 2.4.
