I have a 5.1-current system of Nov 10, also using rev 1.23 of

Without atapicam in the kernel, it boots ok. With atapicam in the
kernel it hangs at the messages (written down from the screen)

(probe2:ata1:0:0:0): Retrying Command
(probe3:ata1:0:1:0): Retrying Command
(probe2:ata2:0:0:0): error 22
(probe4:ata2:0:0:0): Unretryable Error
