OK, here's the libata trace info (transcribed by hand, may have typos,
the numerical values should be correct).

This is during the first read of the partition table, during boot.

ata_scsi_dumb_cb: CDB(:1:0,0,0) 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 08
ata_scsi_translate: ENTER
scsi_10_lba_len: ten-byte command
ata_sg_setup: ENTER, ata1
ata_sg_setup: 1 sg elements mapped
ata_fill_sg: PRD[0] = (0x2FEEF000, 0x1000)
ata1: ata_dev_select: ENTER, device 0, wait 1
ata_tf_load: feat 0x0 nsect 0x8 lba 0x0 0x0 0x0
ata_tf_load: device 0xE0
ata_exec_command: ta1: cmd 0xc8
ata_scsi_translate: EXIT

then, 30 seconds later:

sd 0:0:0:0 [sda] Done: 0xeff3aba0 TIMEOUT
sd 0:0:0:0 [sda] Result: host_byte=DID_OK driver_byte=DRV_OK, SUG_OK
sd 0:0:0:0 [sda] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 ... 00 08 00
sd 0:0:0:0 [sda] scsi host busy 1 failed 0
ata_scsi_timed_out: ENTER
ata_scsi_timed_out: EXIT, ret=0
ata_port_flush_task: ENTER
ata_port_flush_task: flush #1
ata1: ata_port_flush_task: flush #2
ata_port_flush_task: EXIT

Then a hard hang here.

This was on 2.6.22-rc5-git1
Again, this disk and controller combo work spotlessly when using
the ide drivers.
