Sergei, please remember that IT8213 is a _custom_ spin-off from ICH chipset
and it gets some things in rather radically different way (i.e. value of PPE
bit is reversed on IT8213).

It is not according to the official documentation for IT8213 (+ the chip
officially claims to support UDMA6) and pata_it8213 behavior now matches
the behavior of it8213 host driver.

I would love to be able to explain IT8213 chip internals in more detail
but unfortunately the documentation is rather cryptic in this regard as
it only gives you specific values that you should program into specific
registers to get chip properly configured for specific transfer modes...
