    SubjectRe: [PATCH 02/15] ATA : vortex86 : fix vortex86dx/sx hardware CRC bug.

    When I developed this patch for the Vortex86dx. I recall trying many
    combinations of udma and mwdma. At the time I developed it, I came
    to the conclusion that both udma and mwdma both failed with CRC
    errors being reported. I am not readily set-up to redo the testing to
    see if mwdma is indeed also affected by the errata. It will be a couple
    of weeks before I can re-test this patch on the hardware with mwdma
    turned on.
