Yes.
But there is a HW switch.

This is from an email long time ago, with Paulius Zaleckas who has the
yoriginal documentation to this SoC.
I hacked some weeks (or months) to get this thing running.

Some HDD are working well, others don't. At this time, this was only one
manufacturer, who has only the "bad" devices.
Early this year, I got some report from one user. He has two hdd's from
the same manufacturer. One hdd is working well, the other don't.

At the end of this "session" I've taken this device to some hidden place.
;-)
