Yes, I meant .18. Jeff, this should be fixed before 2.6.18 is released.
It's not the question of whether CFA support is implemented or not.
We're sanity-checking in 2.6.18-rcX anyway and it's the sanity checking
which is causing problem. What seems to have happened is...

1. CFA support is implemented
2. CFA check was added (backported) to upstream-fixes, but it was incorrect.

So, we need to do one of two things.

* apply this patch to 2.6.18-rcX
* remove ata_id_is_cfa() check altogether
