	I have researched into updating the ATA driver in DragonFly
	(i.e. 4.x effectively).  There are too many updates that have
	gone in the FreeBSD-5.x driver, such as:

		- PC-98 support
		- BusDMA'ing, for making it work on SPARC
		- Chipset code improvements. (ata-chipset.c was added)
	I would rather wait until the Dev Messaging stuff is completely
	done before bringing in any Hardware updates, apart from Chipset
	ID additions :-)
