    This *supposes* to be for VDMA, but since its introduction in kernel 2.5.35
    (released on 15-Sep-2002!) it does *nothing*.

    From the previous mail:

    [PATCH] remove __ide_dma_count() and ide_hwif_t->ide_dma_count

    Incremental to "[PATCH] remove ide_dma_{good,bad}_drive from ide_hwif_t".

    ->ide_dma_count() was introduced in kernel 2.5.35 and was meant to add support
    for host FIFO counters (for VDMA), but is only a wrapper for ->ide_dma_begin()
    (even for siimage.c b/c SIIMAGE_VIRTUAL_DMAPIO is undefined).

    Moreover it should be possible to add VDMA code directly to ->ide_dma_begin().
