Drive side detection doesn't work for many VIA boards, the neccessary
components are not included.

About the only other check I can think to try is to see if the BIOS
programmed modes > UDMA2 for either device. That has its own problems
(suspend-resume/hotplug/non-bios devices) which is why we currently don't
do it.
