    BTW that host protected area message is pretty silly. It gives
    the appearance that perhaps the BIOS has issued a SET MAX ADDRESS
    when in fact, all the message is doing is enumerating the drive's
    capabilities (duplicating what 'hdparm -I' does). At the
    minimum, this message should be changed to something more like:

    printk("%s: host protected area supported: %s\n",
    drive->name, (flag==1)? "no" : "yes");

    Personally, I think we should lose the message entirely. If
    someone want to know what their drive can do, they can ask
    hdparm and get a full listing,
