    There are two things you can play with. One is the UDMA burst mode on the
    chip which should be getting set, the other is PCI latencies (which the
    BIOS should have set up but you can play with)

    Probably a good idea

    Next things to try are

    1. edit drivers/ata/pata_pdc202xx_old.c
    after the line

    iowrite8(burst | 0x01, bmdma + 0x1f);


    printk(KERN_ERR "BURST was %02X\n", burst);

    build/install/boot that kernel and see what it says.

    The second (sledgehammer) approach would be to use setpci to set the
    LATENCY_TIMER value on the pdc202xx_old and network card differently.
