here's a patch for unlocking the ATA password from grub command line.

Thanks a lot for replying Philippe.
As mentioned in [1] it does not prompt for a password at boot but enables
the hdparm module to support the security unlock feature.

Ah, right. Well, it's a start.

I'm not really a C developer, so I can't supply a patch for the password prompt, but if we have anyone willing to take the time to add that functionality, that would be fantastic.

Philippe - any chance you'd take that up ?;]
In case anyone asks, the patch is GPL.

I guess that works, right ?
