Re: [issue1158] Problems with a SATA DVD burner

	I'm not so sure about this - I just tried your 19 Nov version (I
didn't notice the commit earlier sorry), it gives me an interrupt storm on
boot while the 17 Nov version (DMA only on read/write) does not - but will
only burn once.

	There was an issue with non aligned DMA transfers that Matt fixed
(with changes to physio() around on 10 August). From the commit message it
allocates a bounce buffer if the buffer is not 16 byte aligned - I don't
understand the code well enough to see how the bounce buffer is aligned but
presumably it is at least 16 byte.
