I rewrote the IDE timing code a few days ago, and well... it wasn't
completely bug free ;) Well, it should be ok now, the timings put
into the controller are the same as Darwin and MacOS 9 use for
a given disk, except for some older machines (OHare based) where
I suspect some HW problems and so limited the MDMA cycle time to
150ns (which is approx MDMA1).

Except from that, my kernel got no major change lately, only small
fixes here or there.

Note that you should probably post diffs against _2_4_devel, they
would be a lot smaller :) My tree is a "child" of _devel and
my changes are regulary pushed upstream.
