DISCLAIMER was there for a reason...

Please ping pata_pdc202xx_old maintainer, libata maintainer or said
distributions about it, not me.

Don't get me wrong. I would like to help but such problems usually
take really long time to debug (you have to know both stacks, both
drivers and be able to track subtle differences between all of them)
and you have absolutely no guarantee that it will yield any results.

[ Tejun has spent few days on trying to fix pata_ali MWDMA regression
and he is one of people who really know what they are doing. ]

I don't have such time and my motivation to help is seriously effected
by behaviors like that seen in:

Thanks,
Bart
