not a bug perhaps, but I thought DragonFly can now manage SATA disks? At

I think you can ignore those, the code is not really SATA-aware so it 
thinks it's a normal PATA-controller and performs some checks which 
fails and sets the mode to udma 33. The SATA-controller will ignore this
and work as it should.
