Quoting Marco Gerards <address@hidden>:

I cannot get the ata module to recognize the hard drive on my test
machine, so more work is needed to test it on the real hardware.

Right, this needs more work.  I will have another look at ATA soon :-)

That would be great!

If you check Linux include/linux/ata.h, 1 is ATA_ERR, and we really need
ata_ok(), which checks multiple flags.  So it's clearly material for a
separate patch.

No, I cannot check the Linux code.  AFAIK this can cause copyright
problems.  But I agree that more and better error checking is

I know. That's why I'll write it from specifications or maybe I'll take it from the GNU/Hurd code.
