ATAng problems

Since ATAng was comitted I've had problems with the disk on
which my root filesystem is residing.

If I choose 'Safe mode' in the boot menu, it will boot but
it is then running with DMA and write caching disabled.

This is the dmesg output from a failed boot. If anything
else is needed to figure it out, just tell me what to do.
