This will stop working on SATA when VDMA goes into newer controllers btw.

Doesn't work for LBA48

Ditto

Be careful here - one or two drives get nIEN backwards, you might just
want to turn off interrupts and be done with it

You really need to reset and reprogram/retune the controller as well.

I like the infrastructure but the IDE dumper code is wishful thinking
in one or two spots. You don't know f the controller is in DMA modes,
tuned for different things to the drives or legacy free. Im not sure what
to do for legacy free cases but the other bits like LBA48 and retuning
probably can be handled with some small chipset specific hooks
