Thank you.

"lend me" some small developement system for they interresting CPU.
In return I could give them what's certainly worth "several weeks of
developers time". (If you hear me: this is a hint if you need an argument for
your management.)

This unfortunately is the somehow most wired ATA interface
around. Which is due to the fact that the interface cell is directly mapped to
some CPU registers. As a CPU design I think it's a fine approach. Don't
take me wrong. You save yourself the whole silicon which is needed
for BM access arbitration and general handling and so on... Very nice tought
out. But on the software side this is a bit wired, since you can't use
the generic I/O primitives of the arch in question.

This makes my cleanup of the portability layer a bit hard
to finish on the software side.

And on every other fscking PCI based system... (modulo the "problematic"
cmd640 and RZ1000). Should have been done a long time ago this way... I will
adjust the others as well.
