Affected System: FreeBSD galvatron.taku.ie 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE #1: Sat Mar 19 13:18:46 UTC 2011 root at galvatron.taku.ie:/usr/src/obj/usr/src/sys/GALVATRON amd64

>Description:

	SATA disks connected via the onboard Intel ICH7 SATA300 controller 
	become troublesome to use. I/O  queues fill up and kernel reports 
   frequent DMA issues for each SATA disk on the controller on the console


>How-To-Repeat:
	Run the 8.2-STABLE kernel on a system with multiple disks and the 
	ICH7 SATA300.
>Fix:

	Revert back to a RLEENG_8 kernel built before 8.2-RELEASE was cut.
