See http://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Libata_error_messages for an
introduction.

In general, tons of ATA bus errors and SError register bits means that
problems are coming from the ATA bus, a.k.a. the SATA cable and its
related connections.

So... suspect bad cables, bad port connectors, cable interference,
motherboard-caused interference or grounding problems, power supply
problems.
