I said "module option", which is different from a kernel command line
option.

If you are trying to build a module into the kernel image itself, you
must use the "modulename.moduleoption" format on the kernel command
line, ie. libata.ignore_hpa=1

This message should hopefully change, when the module option is
correctly specified.

All these errors related to unknown-block(22,2) are it trying to find
/dev/hdX, when libata uses the SCSI block devices /dev/sdX

These errors are unrelated to HPA, and are a standard issue encountered
when moving from legacy IDE driver to libata.
