My drive is an SATA WD SE16 500G attached to the onboard SATA  
controller. It's part of the Intel 965P southbridge IHC8 chip. With  
kernel 2.6.18 I can use either AHCI or IDE mode for this controller  
and have my SATA drive show up as ata1 at /dev/sda. hdparm doesn't  
return info about DMA for SATA drives by testing performance looks  
pretty good:

/dev/sda:
Timing cached reads:   12644 MB in  2.00 seconds = 6326.00 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads:  210 MB in  3.01 seconds =  69.79 MB/sec

Here is what the kernel says about it when the drivers load. All in  
all, this looks pretty normal to me. Unless there's some bug in the  
SATA code causing this problem? Anyone else using Fusion cards with  
SATA drives?

I appreciate the fresh set of eyes looking it over.
