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.
