    Without answering your specific question, just remember that sata_mv is
    considerly "highly experimental" right now, and still needs some
    workarounds for hardware errata.

    For now, the goal is a system that doesn't crash and doesn't corrupt
    data. If its occasionally slow or spits out a few errors, but otherwise
    still works, that's pretty darned good :)
