    this is known: Linus decreed that, since two people reported
    disk corruption on VIA, any machine with a VIA southbridge
    must boot in stupid 1992 mode (PIO). (yes, it might be possible
    to boot with ide=autodma or something, but who would guess?)

    Linus: I hope you don't consider this a releasable state!
    VIA now owns 40% of the chipset market...
