Some time ago I issued a patch to fix IDE related problems on Motorola
hardware. This patch was not specific enough and broke the IDE support
on IBM. Here is a revised version which hopefully will not break other
For me this patch works on a RiscPC with the 87303 and on a system
with the WINBOND chip for both disks and CD drives.
IDE disks may appear to work correctly. It is possible to fdisk and
to generate filesystems. If such a disk is than connected to a intel
system, it will not be recognized due to the byte swapping.
