I would rather not be associated with your careless and thoughtless
rework. Funny how you got put on notice for over driving hardware.
It is clear you do not understand it so I would prefer to be disassociated
from your disasters.

IIRC, gee it must to 133 even though the docs says it does not.

Nice, with any luck pATA will be dead before 2.6 is released so people
will not have to suffer data losses from overclocked drivers and main
loops issuing "low-level format" command codes to the hardware at boot.

Have a good day,
