This is possible, however one of the problems encountered is the
following under several chipsets. If there is no pio timing set at all,
then we can run into host lock issues if the driver drops out of dma.
Thus, if it is going to lockup here it would/could lock up in other
places when one trys to program the host for PIO.

Regardsless this is bad, in one direction or another.
