They are really small changes. It's the one I mentioned on the first e-mail
and this one, that was suggested by Andre Hedrick on another post:

+ drive->id->hw_config |= 0x6000;
if(strstr(drive->id->model, "Maxtor"))
return 3;

No, I'm not. Sorry. I'm look for more information. But dma is working with my
SiI3112A, everything is stable, so maybe it should be enabled by default for
this chipset.

Also, there's a change missing in this patch. The PCI id for SiI1210SA is
missing in 2.6.x.

#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_SII_680      0x0680
+#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_SII_1210SA   0x0240
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_SII_3112      0x3112

Anyway, thank you for taking a look at this.
