I understand you don't want the FreeBSD ATA code in DragonFly, but as that
code works I might be interesting to see who it exactly interfaces with the
hardware. To me this doesn't sounds like something more/less
dangerous/time-consuming than reverse engineering a windows driver. Or am I
missing something here?

This btw returns me to my original question: where exactly do I find the
relevant code in the source tree?
