I've now got the SATA part recognised and find one of the two SATA drives
and I'm able to acess the drive. Although there were lots of warnings about
UDMA mode etc - not suprising becuase all I did was add a couple of case
statements to recognise the device. It gave up on the other drive
eventually. It's rather remarkable that it is working at all!

I'll grub around in current tomorrow and see what I can do. Do you want
patches directly or via a send-pr? Or shall I commit after your review?
