There is definitly something fishy here, since I dont have either the
disks nor any VIA chips here in the lab I cannot do any testing here.
However I dont know of any problems with the VIA chips in this regard,
so that leaves the disks for scrutiny. One thing to try is change the
tripping point where we switch from 28bit mode to 48 bit mode, could be
a 1 off error in the firmware...
