OK, looks bad for me.

Just for my interest:

Why does a certain IDE controller not support LBA48?

I always thought an IDE controller isn't more than some ISA-styled bus
with 3 address lines, 2 chip selects and special stuff for
DMA-transfers, together with very special timing generators for PIO-modes.

Whats the problem with these controllers? LBA48, i thought, isn't more
than writing the LBA-registers twice (because of the FIFO), and using
different commands for reading/writing (the _EXT functions).
