    The only SATA devices we support in the core IDE layer are capable of
    doing LBA48 DMA anyway.

    libata is really seperate and for the newer controllers. Its more aimed
    at the latest and upcoming hardware which replaces the SATA controller
    as we know it today (PATA controller hacked up a bit) with stuff that
    looks more like a SCSI controller, with multiple commands, on board
    brains etc. Things like the Promise 2037x are the beginnings of this.
