In ad_print() there is the following statement:

        ata_prtdev(adp->device,"%lluMB <%.40s> [%lld/%d/%d] at ata%d-%s %s%s\n",
                   (unsigned long long)(adp->total_secs /
                                        ((1024L * 1024L) / DEV_BSIZE)),
                   (unsigned long long)(adp->total_secs /
                                        (adp->heads * adp->sectors)),
                   adp->heads, adp->sectors,
                   (adp->device->unit == ATA_MASTER) ? "master" : "slave",
                   (adp->flags & AD_F_TAG_ENABLED) ? "tagged " : "",

Offhand I'd guess that adp->heads and/or adp->sectors is zero.  If
you've got a core file, try backtracking from there with gdb, otherwise
sprinkle some printf's around.  Either this calculation is new, or some
recent change is causing the heads and sectors to be initialized to
