    Subject[BUG] Kernel disables DMA on RICOH CD-R/RW
    As of 2.6.9-rc4 (I have verified this to be case all
    the way up to 2.6.10-rc2), kernel displays this

    Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision:
    ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes;
    override with idebus=xx
    VP_IDE: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:0f.1
    ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:0f.1[A] -> GSI 20 (level,
    low) -> IRQ 20

    hdd: RICOH CD-R/RW MP7083A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
    hdd: Disabling (U)DMA for RICOH CD-R/RW MP7083A

    The kernel disables DMA on the CD-R/RW (/dev/hdd) and
    of course it would not let me enable it manually
    either. Up until 2.6.9-rc3 the drive worked in DMA
    mode just fine.

    (I have been using this drive for more than 4 years. I
    have used it under 2.2.x, 2.4.x, >=2.5.50 in DMA mode
    just fine. Although I have changed everything else in
    the computer in those long years: CPU, M/B, RAM, HDD
    etc., save this great CD-R/RW drive, which has been
    working fine.)

    So the question is: why?
    (And what can I do to enable DMA again?)

    Thank you.
