SubjectRe: [PATCH] ata: pata_at91.c bugfix for high master clock
Dear Sergei,

I don't think so...

The problem was - the same "cycle" variable used to set up NRD_CYCLE
(max value = 127) and NCS_RD_PULSE (max value = 63).
Where NRD_CYCLE, NCS_RD_PULSE names from datasheet for AT91SAM9.
If NCS_RD_PULSE > 63, then overflow occur and pulse is much longer then
For the 132 MHz, driver use NCS_RD_PULSE = 80 at device detection moment
on my board.
Calculated cycle in at91_ide is the same as for pata_at91 driver.

I will send next patch where this driver corrected and tested.

Best regards!
