I am assuming ata_chan_init is the function that does this
demonstration.

I don't see any checking for the ATA bsy flag before you start sending
commands. I have seen the current IDE code fail too many times if I
boot to fast, because of a lack of this one simple test. So I don't
see how this could be considered a proper probe.
