Let us distinguish three types of TCQ:
1) PATA drive-side TCQ (now called "legacy TCQ")
2) Controller-side TCQ
3) SATA drive/controller-side TCQ ("first party DMA")

libata will never support #1, which is what 2.6 supports in experimental
option.

libata will support #2 very soon, and will support #3 when hardware is
available.

The TCQ you are thinking of has been deprecated by the people who make
IDE drives ;-)
