Yes but only on unaffected drives. ;-)

0x2000 is FLUSH_CACHE_EXT support
0x0400 is LBA48 support

Affected drives have 0x2000 set incorrectly so we have to check also 0x0400.
(== 0x2400 is needed because & 0x2400 is true if & 0x2000 OR if & 0x0400).

Everything is explained in the patch changelog:

| - many Maxtor disks incorrectly claim CACHE FLUSH EXT command support,
| fix it by checking both CACHE FLUSH EXT command and LBA48 support
| (thanks to Eric D. Mudama for help in fixing this)

and in the patch itself:

+/* some Maxtor disks have bit 13 defined incorrectly so check bit 10 too */
+#define ide_id_has_flush_cache_ext(id) \
+ (((id)->cfs_enable_2 & 0x2400) == 0x2400)

ide_fill_flush_cmd()

+ if (drive->id->cfs_enable_2 & 0x2400)
+ rq->buffer[0] = WIN_FLUSH_CACHE_EXT;
