I haven't debugged this one yet, and the code I looked at yesterday 
doesn't scream "here's the problem, obviously!". I'll try reproducing it 
This may have something to do with part of JMicron chip support
code not yet included in our ata-chipset.c .  I'll play with it
later today.
Yes, I intend to sync with FreeBSD on a regular basis; though I want the 
current code working first. I'm procrastinating too much regarding 
ataraid, and the manpages...

But your dmesg does show ad0 attaches, right? And if it's on PATA only, 
which controller is it on? The (formerly Acer, ALi) ULi (now nVidia) 
controller or the JMicron one? Fwiw, my new box also has a JMicron 
PATA+SATA+eSATA controller (36x series, I'd have to check), but I have 
my disk on the ICH8R southbridge SATA controller running in PATA 
emulation mode (I have yet to try AHCI mode, and RAID with ataraid support).
