I saw some code in the macosx driver that looks in the driveid and
figures it all out - is that what you mean?

I guess I was asking whether there was already some nifty function in
the Linux kernel that did for DMA modes what ide_get_best_pio_mode
does for PIO modes.

Also, do you have a cvsweb server for your cvs repository?  I don't
want to have to checkout 10s of MB of source just to look at a couple
of files. :-)  (See if you haven't come
across cvsweb before.)
