        I see none (but then, I'm not really a Mach or ATA expert),
        apart from a few style and formatting issues.

        Here, a diff line could've been saved by adding an opening { to
        the if above.  (IOW, no need to drop the C grouping construct
        from here.)

        These two are only stylistic changes, aren't they?  For clarity,
        it may be reasonable to put them into a separate patch.

        Also, for consistency with the style of the code above, my
        suggestion would be to put && to the second line instead:

+       if ((!drive->head || drive->head > 16)
+           && id->heads && id->heads <= 16) {

        In the two instances above, a (presumably unwanted) trailing
        blank was added.

        It seems that no blank lines separate the function's description
        from its definition (at least as well as the rest of the diff is
        considered.)

        This looks like a purely stylistic change as well?
