the answer is yes - there hasnt been an update to the driver. Andre
Hedrick says he has fixed it a month or so ago but has not released it
yet.

btw echo "max_kb_per_request:15" > /proc/.ide/hdX/settings is not for
good performance (it may halve your performance on some drives) it is a
bug workaround.

Look forward to testing libata on Silicon Image.
