just in case anybody's searching the archives:

I got the following advice from Jeff Garzik and it worked (didn't do
much testing yet, but at least the whole disk is usable):

2.4.21-ac4 (vanilla plus ac4 patches)

create another vanilla tree with libata5 patches, then copy the
following files to ac4 tree: drivers/scsi/{ata_piix,libata}.c and
include/linux/ata.h

build with scsi ata support (make sure you have bios set so that sata
drives are seen as sata drives, not legacy ide drives, I only got
machines lockups in legacy mode). The disks should be visible as scis
disk (/dev/sd[a-z]).

libata5 patch:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/jgarzik/patchkits/2.4/2.4.21-libata5.patch.bz2
