    Not really:

    via82cxxx.c: In function `ide_init_via82cxxx':
    via82cxxx.c:548: structure has no member named `highmem'
    make[4]: *** [via82cxxx.o] Fehler 1

    I had to remove the offending line (it isn't there in the 2.4 version
    of the file), and of course add the PCI ID of the SouthBridge in
    the appropriate places. Now the system boots and hdparm says that
    dma is activated. So lets see how well it behaves...

    Yours, Florian Hars.
