I have researched into updating the ATA driver in DragonFly
(i.e. 4.x effectively). There are too many updates that have
gone in the FreeBSD-5.x driver, such as:
- PC-98 support
- BusDMA'ing, for making it work on SPARC
- Chipset code improvements. (ata-chipset.c was added)
I would rather wait until the Dev Messaging stuff is completely
done before bringing in any Hardware updates, apart from Chipset
ID additions :-)
