[explanation of rate backoff trimmed]

Yes, I see this happening, and I agree it is a good idea.

You mean IRQ unmasking? This is interesting. After bootup I see hda/c
(on VP_IDE, ide0/1) having
I/O support: 1
unmasking: 1
but hde/g/i/k (on CMD649, ide2/3/4/5) have:
I/O support: 0
unmasking: 0
So VIA unmasking is NOT disabled (I will do so) but why is the CMD649
disabled if you say it is a good chipset?
