ATAng still problematic

Hello there,

I still have problems with ATAng, with kernel from 15th of September.

First of all, the drive still does not get detected properly. Funny
thing is that after some playing with atacontrol attach/detach, it
finally gets detected. And later on, it is normally detected, before.
Same scenario happened like 3 times with ATAng and newer and newer
kernels. I don't know whether some device hints or anything are just
updated; yet, I didn't have _any_ drive detection problems with ATAold.

The problem is with the second drive. There's still some randomness in
it, as it gets undetected from time to time.

Another thing is with atapicam. First of all, I am not able to do any CD
audio ripping, getting the following:

[15:29] stronghold:/usr/tmp(569)# dagrab -d /dev/acd1 -a
dagrab: error retrieving cddb data
Dumping all tracks
Dumping track 1: lba      0 to lba  42800 (needs 96 MB)
Output file is: track01.wav

dagrab: read raw ioctl failed at lba 0 length 12: Inappropriate ioctl for device

I get the same error with cdda2wav. I've recompiled them both after
upgrading, to no avail.

The second thing is that I get a panic when trying to burn a CD with
atapicam mode.

panic: vm_fault_copy_wired: page missing

I have recent cdrtools, recompiled after system upgrade. I will try to
debug that with a freshly cvsupped kernel.

I have my dmesg attached.
