Decision time.... should NATA become the default for this release?

:I have a laptop at home which doesn't work with NATA, because binaries
:seemingly segfault randomly. I think several other people also have seen
:similar errors. Thomas Spanjaard suspected this might be an interrupt
:issue but so far has been unable to reproduce it because none of his
:hardware exhibits the bug (another box I have runs fine with NATA).
Ok, it sounds like you and Sepherosa have the same issue. Please
report the atapci*, ata*, and ad* lines in the dmesg / console output.
atapci0: <Intel ICH3 ATA100 controller> port
ad0: 76319MB <Hitachi HTS541280H9AT00> [155061/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA100
I'm wondering if your laptop detects the same controller. If so it
could simply be broken settings for that particular controller.
