Subject2.6.11-rc4 libata-core (irq 30: nobody cared!)
I see this problem with the sata_sil.c driver and
SII3112 card. Others have reported seeing a similar

There seems to be a pending interrupt from the drive,
but the code has already set the NIEN bit, so the
ATA_IRQ_TRAP macro doesn't help (the ata_interrupt
handler never calls ata_host_intr in this case).

I've implemented a quick workaround hack, but others
should investigate a better fix (maybe acking pending
interrupts before setting NIEN bit in ata_tf_load??)
