    sys/dev/ata          ata-all.c 
  Change the default for hw.ata.atapi_dma so that DMA is off.  We are
  seeing a lot of install problems that get fixed by turning DMA
  off.  The sparc64 mailing list sees the most reports of this but it
  does come up on others.  Changing the default should give us a more
  robust install, at the expense of people who need DMA for burning
  CDs needing to turn it on (maybe).
  The same change will be made in HEAD shortly by the ata maintainer.
