Mmm... Is *what* wise? :) This commit only documents the kernel's behavior,
which has been the case ever since rev. 1.217 of src/sys/dev/ata/ata_all.c
from August 1 2004. You'll have to talk to Soeren about the wisdom of
enabling ATA and ATAPI DMA by default - and then, this only happens if the
devices actually support it, as described in the documentation.

This sentence every third, but it still comprehensible.
