    I _knew_ I enabled the DMA, but it seems that is switches off when I start
    the transfer:

    hdc: DMA disabled
    hdc: ide_intr: huh? expected NULL handler on exit
    hdc: ATAPI reset complete
    ISO 9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A
    VFS: busy inodes on changed media.

    This is on hdc, which is the DVD. Harddisk has DMA on.
